Fiscal Year End Reporting Tips/June 30 Deadline

As we approach June 30th, it is important to correctly identify dates for charges in Travel Expense Reports. When processing charges that will be for travel in July, 2016 or later, it is important to identify the correct fiscal year associated with these expenses.

If included in a report with other charges, please make sure to include comments that […]

Jan 21 Extreme Weather & Airline Travel – Avoid Delays at the Airport

Extreme weather conditions, forecasted in advance, may result in airline waivers allowing travelers to change their flight plan without incurring additional fees. Airlines issue a travel alert on their website naming airports affected and the parameters qualifying travelers for fee-waived changes. If your travel allows for some flexibility and/or you want to avoid eventful experiences at the airport, I encourage you to check for alerts in advance of your travel. If you booked your ticket through Concur or Anthony Travel, Inc (ATI), we are watching your itinerary. Feel free to call Terri Barner, ATI’s on-site agent, at 570-577-1286 or me […]
