Food and drink will normally not be reimbursed, except it is catering for our workshops,
programmes and training. We do require formal pre-approval for ALL expenses
described above; please email, BEFORE incurring any reimbursable
expenses. *In line with the full transparency provided on our Open Collective website,
the available budget, all financial (other than incognito) contributions, and expenses

How to submit an expense
Expenses will only be paid if there is enough income to cover the expenses within the
collective. Expenses must be documented with a receipt or an invoice and approved by
the collective admin before purchasing it.
Valid expenses are: Provider receipt Provider invoice, mandatory for large amount
Both the receipt and invoice must include the provider name, address, amount etc.
Additionally, any invoice should be addressed to OC (see host detail below), as at the end of the day, Open Collective UK is the client.

There are 2 ways to submit an expense:
1) a member of the collective pays & submits the expense (with the receipt) through
OC, this has to be approved by the admin of the collective. On the back end, OC UK will
pay back the submitter. Ideally, the receipt should be to the host name.
2) Collectives can submit an invoice to the host (via OC). In this case, the invoice must
include the mailing address and be the host organisation, and also reference the
Collective name.
If you are submitting an invoice for your work to a collective hosted by the Open Source
Collective, you'll need to submit your invoice with the full detail of the host as explained.
