This field will auto-populate with the details of the transaction if you clicked on
Go to P-Card Form. If you used the
New P-Card form option, the transaction information will not auto-populate until you select a transaction:
- Personal expense: a transaction not intended for MIT business but was placed on a p-card by accident
- Fraudulent charge: a fraudulent charge
- Anticipating International Transactions: for transactions purchased by suppliers outside of the U.S.
- Anticipating Refund: for transactions where a refund or other credit is expected, such as on tax
If this box is checked, you will need to fill out the p-card form and submit special documentation. See How do I submit a form or check for a personal expense? for how to complete a p-card form in this situation.
A fraudulent charge is a special situation that doesn’t quite follow the flow of filling out a normal p-card form. If you need to check this box, see How do I request a temporary spending increase on my p-card? on what to properly do in this situation.
Anticipated International Transactions
Such transactions are nearly always accompanied by a separate, secondary charge equivalent to 1% of the cost of the original transaction (e.g., if what you bought was $60, the international transaction fee would be around $0.60). If you have purchased from a vendor based outside of the U.S, you should anticipate this fee and check this box. Since these charges are separate transactions, they must be linked to the original charge in QuickBase when they come in, after the original charge’s form has been submitted. See How to connect an international transaction fee or refund to its original charge for what to expect.
Since these credits are separate transactions, they must be linked to the original charge in QuickBase after the original’s form has been submitted. By checking this box, you will be prompted to input the exact credit amount. If you forget to check this box, put the wrong amount, or forget to put in an amount, you will run into issues later when the credit comes in. See How to connect an international transaction fee or refund to its original charge for how to resolve if this happens.
