Giggers can only take expenses during a gig if it has been approved in writing by you as the client (clear instructions must be documented in the job assignment description or documented in the chat).
Before you ask any of our giggers to take any expenses related to the assignment, we urge you to take into account the size of the payment. Please pay as much as possible upfront or in advance to avoid unnecessary expenses.
The gigger has the right to reject expenses. In order to avoid problems, it is important that you clearly communicate the expenses involved with the assignment and agree on them with the gigger before the assignment starts.
If you as a client have not intended to refund the gigger directly in connection with the assignment but instead want us to bill you for the expenses, the gigger is responsible for reporting the expense together with your approval to us. Upgig then decides what is an approved document and when payment is made to the gigger.
Upgig handles expenses for an administration fee of SEK 200 / expense.
Typical expenses that can occur are refueling of a loaned car, purchase of unforeseen materials at, for example, events or perhaps for a train ticket back to the gig's starting place. Expenses for trips to and from the job start point are never approved expenses, but only for travel required within the scope of the assignment.
