Have you not watched Downton Abbey or Gosford Park?
I don't expect the accommodation is up to much.
Worth pointing out that if you provide your own, there is no 'sharing' going on, and you can choose whatever quality level you like, rather than having to use the cheap ones that employer may have bought.
Our staff (not motor trade, but similar) are expected to provide their own standard hand tools - which stay on our premises, usually in locked trolleys.
Specialised tooling, or air powered tools, are provided by the company.
Fairly standard in all the manufacturers I have worked for.
(ie specialised hand built environments rather than say Honda)
Not sure if any of the guys claim for these themselves however.
If this is 'your' bank, it sounds to me like you are under some kind of 'special measures' or 'business support'.
Is the company in difficulty?
Have you confirmed there is no possibility of this being a scam?
None of the above.
Our auditors have a dedicated logon to our systems and crack on themselves,
Sounds like cost of sales to me
As a charity trustee myself, I agree.
With the best will in the world, I would not be advising my children to go into this sector if they were at all concerned about how much they may earn in exchange for the effort/stress.
As we are likely to be experiencing more variability in the coming months, the effect is more pronounced.
I think I will include them as part of the total working capital.
They are, of course, in the full balance sheet each month, but I am trying to pick out key figures for monitoring given these uncertain times we are in.
I agree too, of course.
Do we know if the OP has multi currency set up?
We have been caught by this. The hiring manager was not particularly aware of the rules..
Agent 2 was a much better agent, but we had had the CV from agent 1, so had to pay both.
