In my last job, I had a corporate cell phone, but in this one I don’t. But we received a memo today that the company will reimburse corporate use of personal cell phones. Simply submit the bill, indicating the expenses that were work-related, and we’ll be reimbursed.
Most people have a cell phone plan with some number of minutes included in the monthly fee (in my case, 450 minutes are included). So can I request reimbursement for only those minutes that exceed my monthly plan, or can I pro-rate the minutes used and ask the company to pay a share of my fixed monthly fee? How do others handle this situation?
