More about expenses

Only pay for employees who submit a claim within the month. You don’t pay for an employee if all they did that month was sign in, view previous claims, or approve claims.

Organise expenses and keep them in check. Label what an expense relates to, so you can charge it to the right customer or project. Group and organise your own expenses using labels and assign expenses to a customer or project.

See how to set up and label expense claims

Assign an expense to a specific customer as you enter it, so you can on-charge it. The expense is automatically added to the customer’s next invoice, so you can make sure you’re reimbursed.
