Travel vs. Professional Development
These two expense accounts are very similar but serve different purposes and are reported separately on the university's tax return: Travel (7400) and Professional Development (7401). Use Travel (7400) for transportation, lodging, and meal expenses (e.g. airfare, mileage, hotels, meals). Use Professional Development for training opportunities (e.g. conference registrations, seminars, etc.). If a travel experience involves both types of expenses, please separate them according to purpose. This will help the university to most accurately record and report these activities.
