Hello Emotion: smile

Could anyone tell me if "charged for" is used correctly in that sentence:

"All the expenses caused by this operation will be charged for".

If it's incorrect, could anyone suggest a correct way of putting it?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

"All the expenses caused by this operation will be charged for".

If it's incorrect, could anyone suggest a correct way of putting it?


It's an awkward sentence. One reason is that you don't charge for an expense, but you can charge an expense to, for example, a particular account.

How about 'The costs of this operation will be billed to those responsible'.

Best wishes, Clive
