General Expense Reimbursement Form | Instructions & Guidelines


  • Payee: Enter the name of the payee as it should appear on the cheque. Use the full legal name. For a vendor, please do not use acronyms – for example: Canadian Psychological Association not CPA. There can only be one payee per expense form.
  • Address: Enter the house number, street address, city, province/state, postal/zip code and country. It is essential this information is clear and correct. The cheque will be mailed to this address.

For subject/participant payments, please include the project name and a brief description with a time frame for the study/project.
  • Authorizing Signature: Enter the full name and title of the person who has the authority to sign for the PG.

Supporting Documentation Guidelines

  • Only original itemized receipts and/or invoices are acceptable as supporting documentation. This should include evidence of what was purchased, breakdown of cost, receipt of goods/services and proof of payment if applicable.
  • Payment to a vendor (i.e. invoice payment) requires an original invoice that includes details of what was purchased, invoice number, invoice date and a breakdown of the cost. Price quotations and proforma invoices are not acceptable.
  • The expense reimbursement form is also used for reimbursement of subject payments.
