    Charged by Hotel for Breakfast but they won't send me a receipt

    Charged by Hotel for Breakfast but they won't send me a receipt 10th Oct 16 at 10:01 AM
    So I paid for a a work colleague to stay over night in a local hotel. We usually use the company credit card for this but the owner of the credit card was on holiday so I authorised mine for the two nights plus breakfast.
    I've been sent an emailed receipt for the hotel nights but when I got my credit card statement I noticed an additional charge. I'm fairly sure this must be for breakfast and had authorised this so that isn't really a problem.

    The issue is that I need to claim this charge on my expenses and really require the receipt to do this (I can claim without the receipt but its easier with it and better for the business).

    I have contacted the hotel on the telephone and on Email and have been promised a copy of the receipt but this hasn't been received. Is there anything more I can do?

    Weird post...

    1. You are a bit of a nit in that you are claiming back every penny spent, which in fairness is completely fine if that is what your employer allows.

    2. You, however, are only "fairly sure" that it was a breakfast charge!

    Sorry but you're a bit careless! Were you having a few drinks on company funds (if you say yes it may "open up a can of worms" )? Because I can't see how you could only be "fairly sure" about what a particular charge was on YOUR PERSONAL card. Did you get excited in the room (other users have pointed to that possibility) one night?

    Something smells really fishy.

    Really shocked that you are not confident on what the charge corresponds to, given the company card was unavailable.

    OP paid for the colleague to stay there, not himself. That's why he doesn't know if it's for breakfast or a 'late night film'.

    Also, why should he not claim his money back? I sure as hell do!

    I guess I did miss that! Ah well.

    Didn't say that he shouldn't claim it back, just said he was a bit of a nit for doing so (when I was under the impression he was spending on his own behalf!).

    If he doesn't know then one possible option is to approach the colleague and determine what the extra charge is for.
    ent.

    You would think that it was the first thing the OP would do. Being the simplest, easiest and quickest method to find out what the charge was, and indeed, if he even wants it going through as expenses!

    But as they haven't menitoned it I guess not!
