- Bank move update: Action: Another piece of paperwork is needed for the bank account, with Steve & Mike's signatures only.
- All approved expense claims have been sent through to Craig & Graham for processing. Some expense claims have not yet been approved: this is either because they are from me (Steve can you take a look at these?), because some receipts are needed, or because they were added in the past 2 minutes!
