HONORARIUM PAYMENTS

The procedures for preparing and submitting requests for honorarium payments are described below. 

For the definition, criteria, limitations, and tax implications of honorarium payments please see the Honorarium Payments Policy. 

Any honorarium payment requests, related forms and agreements completed based on these procedures can be sent inter-office to the Accounts Payable Department. If the honorarium is paid through Accounts Payable submit the International Honorarium Agreement and, if applicable, the W8-BEN, along with a completed Voucher Check Requisition to Accounts Payable.  Direct any questions or comments about these procedures to the Accounts Payable Department or email accountspayable@depaul.edu

Payments to DePaul employees for services similar to the types of services that give rise to an honorarium payment should not be processed through Accounts Payable.  Instead, the payment should be processed according to the appropriate Human Resources policies and procedures for one-time payments.

Procedures
The procedures for preparing and submitting requests for honorarium payments are primarily dependent upon the location where the services are provided, the residency status of the person receiving the honorarium payment, and the method of payment.  Based on these factors, the procedures for preparation and submission of your planned honorarium payment should be based on one of the following three possible scenarios. 

Payment to a U.S. Person providing services within U.S. borders. [+] [--]

Payment to a Non-U.S. Person providing services within U.S. borders. [+] [--]

Payment to a U.S. Person or a Non-U.S. Person providing services outside U.S. borders [+] [--]
