1. As far as I can tell, LCR only gives me the option to attach receipts and enter the purpose and choose a category. The old clerk was saying we needed documentation for approval, but I don't see that option. Is this not a thing in LCR? If the expense gets "approved" via the clerk then bishop's online approval, does it matter if the bishop gave written approval, and do they need to show that? Do I need to keep the approval for an audit (if they have it?)
2. The handbook simply states that
How does this reconcile with the inability to attach any documentation about approval in LCR? Is this all taken care of by the online approval of clerk and bishop?Expenditures must be approved by the stake presidency or bishopric before they are incurred. Expenditures should never be approved unless they are accompanied by supporting documentation.
3. Similarly, there are instructions for handling paper receipts, but those simply indicate you should upload a digital copy of the receipt and enter it into LCR, and then paper documentation can be shredded. Is this true? Old clerk was saying they needed to be kept for audits...
Just a bit confused, I know there's a transition from MLS to LCR going on, and maybe that is contributing to my confusion, but if anyone could help me see what the expense reimbursement process should look like on LCR, that would be much appreciated!
