When should I fill in the regain outlay paper?
If you have made a purchase to be used for association/project purposes, you must fill in a regain outlay slip. This form should be submitted in the mailbox located outside the CFO´s office, which is located in the student union offices.

Where can I find the regain outlay paper? 
The papers can be found in the HHGS offices outside the CFO’s office. 

How do I fill in the regain outlay paper? 
The receipt should be stapled to the back of the regain outlet paper. You must keep your receipt to get your money back. Other information should be filled in according to the instructions on the slip. The “reign outlay paper” must be signed by the member of the association who has preemtion right, (teckningsrätt) provided that the purchase does not exceed their preemtion right. 

What does it mean to have preemtion right? (In swedish teckningsrätt)
The preemtion right means that you act as a representative of HHGS and can through this approve purchases on behalf of your association or project up to the amount you have a subscription right for. As the holder of the preemption right, it is your responsibility that the members of the project/association are aware that the section’s activities are part of HHGS. The reason why each section or association must have a preemtion right is that only the HHGS leadership has a preemtion right according to the statutes. The amount for each project or association is stated in the agreement regarding preemtion right that the union president has entered into with the chairman or financial manager, but usually this amounts to SEK 3000. Some associations or projects have preemtion rights for higher amounts and also have the opportunity to sign agreements, this appears specifically in the subscription right in that case.

How do I make purchase with my preemtion right? 
If your association or project wants to make a purchase over the association’s/project’s preemtion right, the purchase must be approved by someone in the union board. All union board members can approve up to SEK 10,000, the vice-president and president can each approve purchases up to SEK 30,000.
