PCard Newsletter - Sent to Liaisons for dissemination to Reconcilers/Cardholders PCard Newsletter November 2017


11/2/17 Phishing email has been reported (Dear Chase Customer).

Please Contact the PCard Office 626-9091 if you receive any email from JPMorgan Chase - DO NOT CLICK ANY LINK

11/01/17 News: In response to the new 1.5% international fee that is being assessed on PCard transactions with foreign merchants, the Financial Services Office (FSO) has created a new object code. The new code, 5535 - Purchasing Card Fees, is necessary to track these nontaxable PCard fees. Currently, these nontaxable fees are being included in the original transaction purchase total and a GEC is required to properly record these fees separately. The creation of the new object code will allow campus to implement this separation at the time the transaction is processed.

5535 - Purchasing Card Fees: To be used on processing fees associated with purchases made using a PCard, such as international fees and vendor processing. Fees are not subject to sales and use tax. NOTE: This object code is NOT to be used for any non-PCard related fees.

Please contact Financial Compliance (compliance@fso.arizona.edu) at 520-621-9097 or your fund accountant with any questions.
