Managing Overtime, Expenses & Allowances
Overtime hours are calculated on both a daily and weekly basis. To provide complete visibility for supervisors of the total hours worked during a pay period, contractors will record both regular and overtime hours on a timesheet. Find a reference guide below:
We make it easy to manage eligible allowances and expenses. Enter, upload and review receipts and supporting documents all in one place, using the expense tab on our online timesheets. Skip the notes or comments on timesheets, as we don’t refer to these when processing reimbursements. Your deadlines for expenses and allowances are the same as your timesheet approval deadlines.
Did you know that BOWEN adds all taxes to reimbursements for eligible expenses? Here’s what you need to know to ensure receipt amounts line up with our calculations, to avoid payment delays:
