Dear Accountants,
Oral approval is not enough for you to pay for that expenditure.

In my career journey, I witnessed a colleague nearly facing severe consequences due to unwritten approval and inadequate documentation. Despite getting oral approval for a payment, the approver later denied it. His saving grace was having a witness during the oral approval. This incident could have jeopardized his career.

📌 Why is this significant
-Written approvals provide a transparent record, ensuring everyone is on the same page.
- Proper documentation protects us from unwarranted liabilities and legal issues.

Please, before you pay for those expenses, ensure you have your approvals documented with the necessary support documents.

How much is bank paying to their staff this time around? because I am wondering how they managed to survive. Because my expenses as a business person this time around is above my profit. Maybe I am the only one that is passing through this I am dieing in silence. Nigeria has happened to me. How are even security men in the banks with families are managing to cope?

This even goes as far a imputing a short note in a bank payment slip or mobile banking transaction before hitting the send button.

Lots of people neglect this.

There is a saying:

If it's not documented/evidenced, it's not done.

You will encounter lesser verifiability issues if you adhere to this rule

The correct thing is to get written approval for any payment.

Sometimes you face challenges when you are working in a sole proprietorship business the owner can just tell you to quickly pay the driver that supply goods or for services. what I do is to get them a book where they will sign, name and date and the owner cannot deny because there is camera everywhere.

I once work in a military establishment as a civilian, those officers will give oral instruction and want action immediately. What I used to do is to prepare a memo like "Base on your directive to do so, so and so, kindly approve same for immediate implementation ...."

The oga said I am a stupid civilian grin

Word of mouth does not count in work space. I've learned over time to always insist on documented approvals. If you are not comfortable with giving a written approval, that is enough redflag for me not to proceed.

Some would want to hide under the excuse that they are unable to access their email. In this case, I ask them to send a text. No be only you get job to protect

An email can save you where the supposed approving authority is avoiding taking responsibility. Or even a text message to the approving bauthority saying as follows:

Kindly recall our discussion on the above subject matter on so so so date and your subsequent directive to execute payment. I have complied to meet up with time and in the best interest of our organization. I will however, need written approval for prosper documentation, sir.

Let him/her start denying ahead of time and let's see
