Long story short: I was travelling abroad with work and we ended up with a large bar tab (over £1500 - don't ask). The company credit card was declined so I paid for it on my personal card.
My employer has been paying chunks directly off of this card for the last couple of months as we agreed to pay half of the balance each. Had the company card gone through, I would have paid the half to the company directly, along with some explaining!
I am wondering how this would be seen in terms of undeclared income. I know how it looks and could be perceived, but if it were myself and a friend splitting the bill, I wouldn't see it as income. It is unfortunate he is paying it from a business account though.
Hope this is clear - I will likely check with an accountant but am interested in your opinions on the matter.
