Dear All: Kindly let me know the Per diem allowance paid at your Co’s for the short term travelers to China. Thanks in Advance, Regards, Aman
From India, Bangalore
Thanks for the quick response. Since it is business trip, if a co., dint pay appropriate per diem the person may deny to travel.
Hence I am looking out how other co., are paying to their Travellers. Is it paid as USD or INR??

From India, Bangalore
\Per diem is decided by the daily cost incurred by an employee while working in a different location. It includes the expense with relation to the standard of living of the city and Business - project valuation.You may calculate the amount with respect to the land where the employee is. For example its in INR for Indian employees , whereas it would be in USD for employees in US .MNCs maintain a common sheet on USD to create a parity . Do arrange for an initial amount within the office which the employee would collect before leaving . Thereafter , you may allow the employee to use the Diner's , Amex or whichever credit card is issued to the employees who are travelling . The employee needs to be issued a letter mentioning the project date , amount of Per diem allowed. Later on the employee needs to apply for reimbursements through your ERP and pay the credit card bills.
