Pursuant to state guidelines and UF’s Policy on Business Entertainment, gratuities should not exceed 15 percent of a bill’s subtotal before tax. In some cases, where there is an automatic gratuity charged by a venue, tips on meals may exceed 15 percent. This increase is allowable and will be reimbursed by the University.
Please help spread the word to your colleagues so they are aware of this allowable reimbursement. To review the policy, please visit the Division of Finance and Accounting website.
