The expense reimbursement process allows employers to pay back employees who have spent their own money for business-related expenses. When employees receive an expense reimbursement, typically they would not report such payments as wages or income. These types of reimbursable expenses occur when employees travel for work, but can come from other activities related to their employment, for example, certain purchases of work-related supplies or tools.
You can use the Expense Submission feature to send through an expense request for approval, with the ability to specify the date it occurred, the amount, the tax code and location. You can also use this feature to edit an expense claim and cancel a submission that is no longer required.
