Petty Cash

Guidance on Petty Cash

  • Petty cash may be used for small payments of goods and services (£35 and under) where the Purchase Card cannot be used.
  • All expenses should be reclaimed within 28 calendar days of the expense being incurred.
  • A Petty Cash Voucher should be completed with the original receipt attached and approved by an authorised signatory.
  • Where your department holds a petty cash float, please redeem the voucher there, otherwise take it to the appropriate Cashier's Office for reimbursement.

For further guidance, please refer to our Petty Cash Regulations and Procedures (section 8.0) in the Financial Procedures Manual.

Should you have any further queries please contact our Cashier's Offices on the Coleraine or Jordanstown campuses.
