Reader’s question: Which is correct: monies or moneys?
Answer: You can use either. In everyday usage, most people don’t pluralise money.
I earned so much money last year, I considered retiring.
But it can be made plural in tax and accounting documents for individual sums of moneys/monies.
You can’t reclaim moneys/monies already invested.
