Since 2001 the FSFE has been enhancing users' rights by abolishing barriers for software freedom. For 20 years we have been helping individuals and organisations to understand how Free Software contributes to freedom, transparency, and self-determination.

For the next two decades we need your help. We want everyone to be able to control their technology. Free Software and its freedoms to use, study, share, and improve are the key to that goal.

Per Diem / VKP statement

In this form, you can enter travel days – e.g. for conferences – and the meals you paid yourself during this time. The correct amount will be calculated and sent to the financial team. For each individual travel/conference, you have to fill the form separately! Do this as soon as possible after a conference to not forget details, and to make sure that the amount will be checked in time by the financial team.

With the checkboxes of the left column you can add a day in your calculation; the unchecked days will be ignored. For your travelled days you can mark which meal you paid with your own money.

By default the calculator assumes you paid all meals yourself, so you will have to uncheck those meals which FSFE paid for, e.g. by paying the hotel room incl. breakfast.

The outward and return travel day are calculated with a reduced per diem amount, according to the legislation of your residence (currently Germany is pre-defined). Please make sure that you know whether a certain day counts as half/travel or full day.
