Please see the chart below. Rox Luo and Mark Liu are in the same team, so their T&E costs should be booked under personnel training costs (ac: 60042101) . ZHANG Lingzhi, Lisa Wu and Jenny Xiong are in the logistics team, the cost center is 41514306. Pls. help to adjust according to the remarks column, thanks.
The deadline of Dec boutique reporting is Jan 13th (Friday, Swiss time), as the Chinese accounting team is busy on the PRC year-end closing, they will finish the report before you start working on Monday (Jan 16th). If it is OK from your side?
Pls. see the cost center description below, LOG belongs to the WS team, but it has its own cost center 41514306.

The actual Dec 16 LOG department staff cost only had 6K (variable bonus), which was very weird. After investigation, the LOG staff cost had been booked under the cost center 41414302, which was wrong. 41514302 is the cost center of WS department, so could you kindly help to adjust them to 41514306, thanks.
