If you need to process expense reimbursements to your employees, you can have this enabled in your portal. Please contact Support if you need to have this function enabled.
Expense Categories are categories that can be assigned when an expense is created, to classify it with other similar expenses. You can view the Expense Categories in your portal by going to Config > Payroll > Expense Categories.
You'll see a default list of expense categories in here when you first navigate to this screen. You can choose to use as many or as few of these as you need. You can change the names, or simply delete any that you don't require.
If your portal has more than one region enabled, filter the Report Settings drop-down by Regulatory Region to view the Expense Categories associated with the selected region only. If only one region is enabled, all Expense Categories will automatically link to that region.
Add an Expense Category
- Go to Config > Payroll > Expense Categories > click ‘Add New Expense Category’.
- If prompted, select a Region > Create new Expense Category. (This step is only required in portals with more than one region enabled.)
- Enter a Name for the category.
- Select the Invoice Item Type (eg Expenses)
- Enter the Income and Expense Account Codes that should be used when this Expense Category is assigned to an expense.
