Expense claims: gratuities

Expense claims: gratuities

Didn't find your answer?

Have searched the web and have found no reliable info but the question is simple enough (I think) - can you claim the gratuity on a meal as an expense or just the cost of the meal?

Covered recently
Mandatory service charge, yes; "gift" to waiter/ waitress, no. That was my view but someone else said yes/yes, from memory.

Agree with Phil
A service charge is part of the bill you have no choice about it (unless it's a discretionary charge this is same as tip as you can ask it to be removed) but a tip is a non mandatory gift to server.
So i'd agree yes service charge & no tip
