Expenses policy

Information relating to the IET’s policy on expenses and the processes involved in reimbursement.

The IET recognises the enormous contribution that volunteers make through the gift of their time. Reasonable out of pocket expenses can be claimed for most volunteering roles, including attendance at committee meetings. If you are unsure whether this applies to your role please seek the guidance of your staff contact before you incur expenses.

The Policy applies to IET volunteers, including members and non-members claiming expenses directly from the IET. There is a separate expense claim form for members claiming expenses directly from their Local Network. Information about expenses relating to guest speakers can also be found within this policy.

Please help us to process your claims quickly by remembering to include your original receipts.
