Cash Buyout of Meals
Some performer contracts call for a certain amount of cash to be provided for meals. This is called a cash buyout. The meal buyout is generally no more than $20 per person per meal.
To cover this, you should request a cash advance in your name. When you hand the cash to the performer, have the person sign a Tour Manager Receipt to verify that the cash was received. (Note: We will provide you with a blank tour manager receipt when you pick up your Business Expense Report related to your cash advance.)
You cannot use the cash advance to pay the performer fee. That can only be paid by a Dartmouth College check.
