Concur Expense

Concur Expense is an online Internet-based service that electronically files expense
reports. Concur expense is linked to the ADP payroll program, allowing you to have
your expense checks direct deposit to your bank account. (A special form is needed to
set this feature up).

GENERAL GUIDELINES
 It is the policy of Advanced Bionics to reimburse an employee for reasonable and
  necessary travel and business expenses incurred while conducting company
  business.

 All employees are personally responsible for the accurate documentation and timely
  submittal of Expense Reports. The employee on a weekly basis should submit
  expense Reports. No more than a 7-day period (Sunday through Saturday) should
  be submitted on one expense report. If an Expense Report is submitted after 60
  days, a written explanation for the delay should accompany the report. Reports later
  than 90 days will need to be signed by Jeff Greiner. Expense reports more than 6
  months old might not be paid. Also note that Advanced Bionics does not reimburse
  employees for interest incurred on their credit cards.

 Expense Reports should be prepared using the Concur Expense program provided
  on the Internet. On the Concur system printed copies should be submitted directly to
  the payroll department. If your approval manager requests to see the hard copy of
  your expense report before they are sent to payroll, send them directly to the
  administrative assistant for your area. When using the Concur Expense program be
  sure to include detailed information such as persons attending meals, conversion
  rates, etc. If you do not have access to a computer, you should continue to use
  the old Expense program and have your manager sign the hard copy of the
  report before sending it to payroll.

Advanced Bionics Corporation                              Expense Report Guidelines




DO’S
 Employees should always try to obtain an itemized receipt for each expenditure.
  Credit card receipts with amount totals only (not itemized) should only be used for
  restaurant meals.
 Stay within budgeted amounts and guidelines. Every attempt should be made to
  pay reasonable amounts for all travel needs. Obviously, there may be exceptions in
  certain cities and at certain times of the year.
 Even though air travel may be billed directly to Advanced Bionics, employees should
  always include airfare expenses and/or airline ticket receipts.
 Remember to date your Expense Report with the correct week ending date. Your
  Expense Report cannot be paid without your manager‟s approval in Concur.
 If the weekly expenses involve Foreign Currency, proof of foreign currency rate
  (exchange rate voucher, newspaper or Internet print out that coincides with the date
  of expenses) must accompany the Expense Report. The Concur program will do the
  foreign currency conversion for you. Please write in the U.S. dollar amounts on
  each receipt next to the foreign currency amounts. All Expense Reports must
  be in U.S. dollars.
 If you lose a receipt or no receipt is available, hand write the information along with
  the rest of the receipts. Include the date, place, item and expense amount. Also
  indicate “no receipt” on the Expense Report and in the Concur program. Items over
  $25.00 can not be reimbursed without a receipt or some other proof of payment due
  to IRS regulations
 Receipts should be attached to the Expense Report by taping them to blank paper in
  chronological order. It is preferred that employees use a separate sheet for each
  day and include the date on the top of the page.


DON’TS
 An Expense Report is considered incomplete and may be returned to the requester
  if it meets any of the following criteria:

     Original receipts are not attached properly. Receipts must be attached or
      written explanations given. Receipts should be taped to blank paper in
      chronological order.
     Multiple Expense Reports are stapled together. Submit one report at a time with
      appropriate receipts.
     Amounts are listed in the wrong categories. Please refer to category distinctions
      in the “Expenses” section.
     An unusual expense is included in the report without a completed Unusual
      Expense Justification form (see below).
     Expenses are entered in an incorrect category.

Advanced Bionics Corporation                              Expense Report Guidelines




UNUSUAL EXPENSE JUSTIFICATION FORM
Some expenses may be deemed unusually high (such as entertainment meals costing
more than $50.00 per person, or hotel bills exceeding $150.00 per day) or considered
unusual (such as gifts). If an unusual expense outside of the Expense Report
Guidelines is included, an Unusual Expense Justification form should be submitted.
The employee must provide written justification so the department Sr. Director or Vice
President may determine whether this unusual expense was (or is) warranted. The
accounting department will not reimburse unusual items without this completed form
attached.

EXPENSES
Expenses are classified into five groups and are listed below in the order that they
appear on the Expense Report. Each group is then divided into subcategories. Each of
these groups and subcategories are described below and should appear in the same
order on your Expense Report.

Transportation
 Miles (Mileage): The reimbursement for business related use of a personal
   automobile is $.375 per mile for year 2004. The mileage rate is subject to change.
   Report your daily mileage including an explanation of where you traveled and why.
   Traffic violations such as speeding or parking tickets are not eligible for
   reimbursement.

 Airfare/Travel: Employees who travel are expected to utilize the most economical
  and safe means when planning business trips. All air travel should be economy
  (coach) class. Any upgrades from economy class are the financial responsibility of
  the employee. Substantial savings on airfare can usually be obtained by booking at
  least 14 days in advance. When booking tickets take into consideration the potential
  of having to cancel the flight or make last minute changes and the cost of any
  penalties that might be incurred. In many cases, the change fee may be more
  economical than full fare if travel plans change. The fee to change a ticket is
  typically $100.00. Connecting flights should be utilized when possible and if the total
  increase in travel time is not significant. Greatly reduced airfare may also be
  obtained by staying over a Saturday night, but additional hotel and meal costs
  should be considered before determining if a Saturday stay is necessary/cost
  effective.

 Corporate Travel Agents: Employees are expected to use of one of Advanced
  Bionics‟ corporate travel agents. Our corporate travel agent is Travel Bug (800) 255-
  5030 or (818) 907-1987.

Advanced Bionics Corporation                               Expense Report Guidelines




 Car Rental: Advanced Bionics does not currently have any discounted rates with car
  rental service agencies. Employees are expected to use the most economical rates
  available and to submit the expense on their Expense Report. Before renting a car,
  the employee should determine whether use of public transportation would be more
  economical (train, taxi, etc.). Employees are advised to use discretion when
  choosing a car. When travelling alone a compact car should be used. When
  traveling with another employee or entertaining customers, a mid-size may be more
  appropriate. The fee for all rental cars should be no more than $60.00 per day.
  Liability insurance and collision damage insurance should be declined since this is
  covered through company insurance. Do not submit mileage when renting a car.
  Include a receipt for any gasoline purchased and put this amount under the Gas
  category. Gasoline for rental cars should be purchased prior to returning the car
  when possible.
 Local Transportation: This includes taxi, rail, bus or shuttles used. Get an original
  receipt when possible and include destinations on your Expense Report. Tips for
  drivers should be written on the receipt as well and included under Local
  Transportation and not under Tips.
 Tolls/Parking: Tolls and parking expenses incurred during business related uses are
  reimbursable. Submit all receipts. If one is not available or is lost, hand write in the
  information along with the rest of the receipts and include all pertinent information.
 Car Expense: No expenses should be recorded in this category. Advanced Bionics
  does not pay for personal automobile expenses such as gasoline, oil changes and/or
  repairs.
 Gas: Include a receipt for gasoline purchased for a rental car.

Lodging
 Hotel: All Advanced Bionics employees are expected to utilize the most economical
  accommodations available. Selection of lodging should be consistent with safety,
  convenience and cleanliness. The suggested allowance for hotel accommodations
  should not exceed $150.00 per night, including taxes. Obviously, there may be
  exceptions in certain cities and at certain times of the year to this amount. An
  Unusual Expense Justification comment should be entered on Concur whenever
  hotel accommodations exceed the allowance. Hotel bills must be itemized per IRS
  regulations, into their components (room and tax, phone and fax, meals, other, etc.).
  If your stay is longer than one night, break down your hotel expenses for each day.
  If your stay spans two expense report periods, please include a copy of the bill on
  each report. Room and tax costs should not be included as one item and need to be
  separated. There is no reimbursement for movies. For those employees who utilize
  a private dwelling in lieu of hotel accommodations, a $50.00 gift allowance can be
  provided for the host. This can be in the form of a meal provided, gift certificate, or
  gift item from the employee. Make sure to provide an explanation for this gift
  allowance with the expense report.

      company names and the purpose for entertaining.

 Bottled water and/or snack foods should be included in one of the meal categories
  and not listed under other.
 Tips should not exceed 15% and should be included as part of the meal expense
  and not listed separately under the “Tips” section.

 Exhibit Fees: A Check Requisition form along with proper back-up documents

  Report. Mail the originals to the department Administrative Assistant for processing.
  Exhibit Fees will be paid directly to the exhibition.

  to the event. If you do not plan in advance and have to personally pay Registration
  Fees and want to be reimbursed, they may be submitted on an Expense Report.
  The invoice and a cancelled check or credit card statement must accompany the
  Expense Report.
 Federal Express Charges: Because of a large volume of business, Advanced
  Bionics receives a substantial discount from Federal Express. To maximize this cost
  benefit, it is imperative that Advanced Bionics employees use the company account
  when sending shipments for business purposes. Please use discretion when
  choosing overnight delivery if sending items that do not have time restrictions.
 Membership Fees to Professional Organizations: Membership fees will be paid
  directly by Advanced Bionics. For payment, the original invoice and a Check

                          Amendment to the Expense Report Guidelines

             Any items relating to the paragraph below purchased after October 5,
             2003, if over $100.00, will not be reimbursed on expense reports. These
             types of expenses will only be reimbursed with signed authorization
             from the IS Dept. In order to not have a delay in your expense
             reimbursement, please adhere to the Expense Report guidelines.

                 Before selecting any computing or telecommunications related products or
                 services, please review your requirements with the IS department. This will
                 assure your needs are met as quickly as possible at the lowest cost to the
                 company, and reduce the risk of implementation, support or other
                 compatibility problems. IS stocks many frequently needed items and has
                 special corporate and volume discount agreements with preferred vendors for
                 most others.

             * These include, but are not limited to, computers, computer hardware,
             monitors, printers, modems, routers, switches, storage devices, servers,
             firewalls, printers, PDAs, displays, cabling, keyboards, pointing devices,
             scanners, data entry devices, speakers, projectors, cameras, other peripheral
             equipment and any related accessories. Also, telephones, answering
             machines, fax machines, cell phones, long distance service, telephone credit
             cards, conference calling, pagers and any company paid phone services.
             Basically, all hardware, software or services of any kind that may be used
             with, on or connected to any AB systems or networks.

             IS approval will also reduce delays and other potential problems with
             PO placement, invoice payment and expense reimbursement.

                  Amendment to the Expense Report Guidelines

Please find below an amendment to the Telephone section of the
Expense Report Guidelines, effective July 12, 2004. These guidelines
will insure that all phone charges for the employee off site locations are
paid in a timely manner to the correct account, which will avoid any
interruption in service. Please make sure to change the billing address to
your home address for all the telephone and cable (DSL) service providers
you are using for business purposes at your home location. These
payments should be paid directly by you to the service provider, and then
submitted through an expense report for reimbursement. This new process
will also allow employees the choice of retaining this service at their own
discretion.

**This does not include nation wide plans & coverage between our AT&T
and Verizon accounts. This also does not include long distant carriers as
well as the calling cards for sprint.

** Telephone Bills, Cable (DSL) etc… for employee home off site location, should be
billed directly to the employee and paid by the employee. These expenses should be
submitted with the original receipt through the Concur Expense Report program. If a
home phone is used for personal and business purposes, highlight all company calls,
total them and include the phone bill with your Expense Report. In order to be
reimbursed, you must submit your detailed phone bill. Make sure all phone bills for a
home office are billed directly to your home address.

++ Report charges such as these in the Concur Expense program under „Telephone –
Home Business Line‟.

CONCUR
Procedure on how Administrative Assistants Enter Expenses for their
Manager.
The employee, to whom you will be doing expenses for, must log on
and add you as their Administrative Assistant, giving you permission
to enter expenses for them.
Administrative Assistant
   1. Question: How does an Administrative Assistant enter reports?

         Answer: Go to Review Reports screen. From the Reports tab,
         click the administrative assistant icon from the title bar. A list
         of employees for whom you can create expense reports (or
         "impersonate") appears. Click the appropriate name. You are
         returned          to          the          Reports           tab.

         Note: The title bar changes to your name, followed by the
         person you are creating an expense report for. You can then
         create  or    edit  expense   reports  for    that  person.


    2. Question: If an administrative assistant starts creating an
       expense report, but leaves open the explanation of business
       meals, can the traveler finish the expense report? Would the
       traveler see it on his desktop; or would the traveler have to go
       to the admin assistant desktop (sign in with the admin
       assistant's                logon                ID/password?).

         Answer: Yes, the traveler can edit or complete any field on the
         report as long as the report has not been submitted. When an
         administrative assistant creates a report, it is just as if the
         traveler was entering the report. The traveler will see the
         report on their "View Expense reports" screen just as if he/she
         had generated it. The traveler does not have an administrative
         assistant desktop. Employees should never log in as anyone but
         himself or herself to keep the integrity of the audit trails intact.
