As a District we recognise that we rely on both salaried and voluntary personnel, drawing on the expertise of both ordained and lay people. Where anyone in these groups incurs additional costs as a result of carrying out agreed duties as part of your role, the District will meet claims for appropriate expenses.
All expenses should be claimed within 3 months on the appropriate expenses form, provided by your employer. Where expenses are significant, monthly claims should be completed. These will then be paid as soon as possible.
Particular care should be taken to ensure all expenses for the Methodist financial year (to 31 August) are claimed if possible by the first week of September of the following year. For example, claims for August requested by mid August, with late August claims being paid with September claims, to allow payments to balance over the year end.
The District Expense Claim form can be downloaded from this page. There is also a document which gives some guidance on how to complete a claim. If you have any difficulties, please contact Katrin in the District Office.
Once completed, the form and receipts should be sent to the District Office via email or by post. Payment is made by bank transfer. Please let the District Office know if this is likely to be an issue.
