Useful Tips for Tri-Council Grants

Receipts for Credit Card Purchases

When submitting expense reimbursement claims for purchases made using your personal credit card, please ensure the original receipt along with the credit card confirmation slip is attached to your claim. Submitting the credit card confirmation slip alone is not sufficient, as the details of the purchase are included on the original receipt and are required for audit purposes.

During an audit, the Tri-Council (NSERC, SSHRC and CIHR) will review original receipts to ensure expenses are eligible and in accordance with Tri-Council regulations. For example, claims for meal receipts cannot include tips or alcohol, given that the Tri-Council views these charges as ineligible. Therefore it is important to ensure claims are properly supported by detailed receipts.

If you have any questions regarding this requirement please do not hesitate to contact
