Expense claims need to be approved by 17.00 on Friday in order to be paid to you on the following Friday. Events such as bank holidays, Easter and Christmas can accelerate these deadlines. Please check the News page of this website for updates on these events, when applicable.

If you cannot see your approver, you will need to contact your local HR and they will arrange for you to be assigned to your correct approver.
