Spend company money like it is your own money. No, really.

Office Equipment

The easiest way to buy something for the office or for your workstation is to ask circle:People Care

Specifically, the employee should contact:

  • The People Care/Welcome Pack & HW Replacement for notebooks, additional screens or smartphones by writing an email.

    Policies defined in order to replace above mentioned hardware are:

    1. replacement may be requested after 3 years of hardware life;
    2. replacement can be made with hardware of the standard model defined by Internal IT and People Operation;
    3. replacement can be requested before the expiration of 3 years in case of failure.
  • The Welcome Pack & HW Replacement for every HW components related to the Welcome pack.

    1. If you need to buy something that you don't ask for initially, and it is included in the Welcome Pack list, you can refer to Welcome Pack & HW Replacement.

    2. If you need to replace something related to the Welcome Pack ask to Welcome Pack & HW Replacement. You can also refer to Welcome Pack & HW Replacement if you need to buy something that you don't initially ask for in the Welcome Pack, but the request must stay in the welcome pack perimeter (e.g. if you need a particular keyboard, you can ask to buy a keyboard with a budget around the budget defined for the keyboard in the welcome pack; if you want an office chair to work from home, and that is not available as eligible buy in the welcome pack, you can't ask them).

  • The People Care/Facility Manager of your office, writing to his/her email address, for every other daily equipment in the physical offices: Cables, Webcams, Headphones, Keyboard, Mouse/Trackpad, Laptop Stand.

Office equipment must be used for business only.

Software

We use Microsoft Office 365, typically the online office suite is enough, but if you need the desktop suite to do your job properly, just ask. If you need an additional software that requires a license do the following steps:

  • ask your colleagues if this software can solve also their needs and collect feedbacks
  • send an email to the Finance/Purchasing Officer explaining why it is important and how many people need it.

Business cards

Business cards, if needed, can be requested by emailing People Care

Coffee is free !!!

Expenses

This is mainly referred to work trip expenses. Please arrange yourself the best solution. Don't ask People Care/Corporate Travel Officer to organize the travel for you, People Care/Corporate Travel Officer will only pay for it. If you have time to plan a trip, do it in advance to reduce costs as you do with your personal trips. You don't need authorizations unless you have to bypass soft limits, so don't ask for them.

Car

If you use your personal car for a business trip, the mileage will be reimbursed using the dedicated expense type 03) INDENNITA' KILOMETRICA. In this case, the requester is required to attach:

  • the ACI table PDF with the travel date, taking the overall kilometric cost based on the annual average.
  • a completed Excel spreadsheet to the request
  • the photo of the car registration document showing the car model.

Do not request a fuel refund as it is already included proportionately in the kilometric cost. If you do not own a car and think that the best solution is to rent one, simply do so. In this case, you can request a fuel refund by attaching the receipts (along with the rental invoice).

Lunch/Dinner

In Italy, the limit for reimbursement for a single lunch is €30, and for a single dinner it's €50. For expenses abroad, the reimbursement for a lunch is €30, and for a dinner it's €65. Payments made in the so-called "split bill" manner cannot be reimbursed as they make it difficult to identify the diners. Anyone incurring expenses for goods and services is required to be reimbursed individually by the company.

For each lunch/dinner ALWAYS attach the receipt or purchase invoice in .jpg or .pdf format.

Hotel

Soft limit at 100 Euro/Night. If you need to bypass the soft limit, ask for approval from the owner of the budget you are using (e.g., Lead Link of the Circle you are traveling for)

Transportations

Soft limit is 500 Euro overall for transportations. If you need to bypass the soft limit, ask for approval from the owner of the budget you are using (e.g., Lead Link of the Circle you are traveling for)

Conferences

Soft limits described above are for generic work trips, not conferences. Conferences have different spending criteria, please refer to the training budget benefit section.

Purchasing process

Scenario 1: self-purchase and reimbursement request

  1. buy the good you need (obviously referring to the current guidelines for Welfare & Benefits, and the other mentioned above)
  2. add a new expense entry on Elapseit with type:
    • 07) RIMBORSO PIE' DI LISTA if you have a receipt or invoice but NOT for Agile Lab.
    • 7A)RIMBORSI SPESE FATTURATI ALL’AZIENDA if there is an invoice made out to Agile Lab.
    • 7B)RIMBORSI SPESE TRAINING if you purchase materials or courses for personal training and use the Training Budget.
  3. For every expense entry, a receipt or purchase invoice must ALWAYS be attached. It is essential to always attach expense receipts (receipts, train tickets, plane tickets, metro, tram, tolls, etc.) in .jpg or .pdf format. Only receipts and invoices are considered expense documents: payment transactions are not accepted, since they are only indicative and do not prove the expense. Expense receipts must clearly state the following elements: place and time, vendor, description of the item or service purchased, quantity, unit price, total amount, any taxes.
  4. compile the other fields as usual (incurred date, actual currency, amount). The project should depend on what the expense is related to. Imagine it's time instead of goods and use the same guidelines of projects as in ProjectTimesheet. E.g. if it's personal training material, you must use <current year> Agile - Training - Personal Budget.
  5. save the expende entry on Elapseit. The administration will include the reimbursement in the next payroll

December expenses can be registered until the last week before the week of the 25th.

Scenario 2: request the Buyer to purchase something

  1. find the good you need and verify if your personal budget allows this purchase (obviously referring to the current guidelines for Welfare & Benefits, and the other mentioned above)
  2. add a new expense entry on Elapseit with:
    1. type : 20) PURCHASED BY BUYER (RDA - RICHIESTA DI ACQUISTO)
    2. Project : it should depend on what the expense is related to. Imagine it's time instead of goods and use the same guidelines of projects as in ProjectTimesheet. E.g. if it's personal training material, you must use <current year> Agile - Training - Learning.
    3. compile the other fields as usual (incurred date, actual currency, amount)
    4. submit the entry
    5. once submitted, get the Elapseit's "Expense ID" (e.g. ELI_0001234)
  3. email the Buyer of your choice, or buyer@agilelab.it, including:
    1. the link (and, if necessary, the instructions) for the purchase
    2. the Expense ID you got from point 2.5 (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
  4. if approved, the Buyer proceeds with the purchase and add by himself/herself the receipt document editing the Elapseit entry, leveraging the Expense ID to find it. This closes the process and the expense is trackable by everybody.

Additionally, the Is billable checkbox is reserved for expenses that can be billed on the customer and in the scope of a specific project (i.e. work trip to the customer's offices); this option is to be left unchecked in all other cases.

Following this process, you can easily track your personal training budget status, lead links can autonomously track the circle's expenses and administration processes will be more efficient.
