Debian reimbursement How To

It might happen that you need to be reimbursed by Debian (e.g. for some expenses you made on behalf of the project, or because you have been granted sponsored attendance to a Debian event). This document explains how you can obtain your reimbursement.

As a general rule: you must have original receipts for your expenses and you shall be able to produce them in order to be reimbursed. No reimbursement will be possible in absence of those receipts, sorry.

Also, you should be aware that no reimbursement will be processed unless previously approved by the DPL. Please make sure your reimbursement have been previously approved before proceeding to request it, otherwise you'll simply induce useless work to all people involved in the reimbursement procedures.

Finally, you should request your reimbursements in a timely manner: late coming reimbursement requests are a PITA and make it hard to estimate available monetary resources. As a general rule, no reimbursement requests will be processed if requested more than three months after the corresponding event (sprint, purchase, etc). If it is much more convenient to you to submit your reimbursement request later than that, you can submit it no more than a year after the corresponding event, but you must inform leader@debian.org and auditor@debian.org of that delayed submission during the three-month period, with a rough estimate of the expense (+/- 10%).

Overview of the process

  1. Before making the expense, ask for pre-approval:
  2. Wait for pre-approval
  3. Make the expense
  4. Ask for reimbursement (see contacts below). Refer to your previous pre-approval, especially if the pre-approved amount meets the requested reimbursement (no approval from the DPL needed in that case)

Who will reimburse you

Reimbursements will not be processed by "Debian" itself, as Debian is no legal entity and as such has no money. Rather, reimbursements are processed by Debian trusted organizations. Debian cherishes the money received via donations to the project, therefore, to minimize the waste of money due to currency conversions, which Debian trusted organization will reimburse you depend on where you live. Unless told otherwise, use the following rule of thumb (first match counts):

  • if you live in Switzerland and want to be reimbursed in CHF, you will be reimbursed by debian.ch

  • if you live (elsewhere) in Europe, you will be reimbursed by ffis e.V.

  • if you live anywhere else, you will be reimbursed by SPI Inc.

How to get your reimbursement

SPI

ffis e.V.

  • official page with information about ffis

    • in German only, but not required to complete the reimbursement procedure
  • procedure:
    1. Open an RT ticket at treasurer-ffis@rt.debian.org, including "Debian RT" in the subject; copy that mail to kasse@ffis.de. Ask for approval for reimbursement if the requested amount does not match the pre-approved amount (say so if it does, and refer to your pre-approval email). (Note: leader@ and auditor@ receive a copy of RT tickets filed at treasurer-ffis@)

    2. Use the interactive reimbursement form

    3. mail it (as in paper-mail, not e-mail) to the address mentioned in the form, including original paper receipts

    4. Do *NOT* send the mail via certified mail (Einschreiben) which may fail, or delay reimbursements needlessly, or may require the association to spend additional time needlessly

  • If you're organising an event, sprint, developers meeting etc. it is usually sufficient that the main organiser asks for reimbursement, naming all people and sums; and each reimbursee to just send in the form and receipts.
