Expense Reports

An expense is an outflow of money sent for business purposes from an employee’s personal account to pay for an item or service. Expense Reports section is located in both Employee Profile and in Accounting and Finance sections. Employees can add expense reports and if manager approves the expense report, the expenses will be refunded to employees by accountants.

In order to view all expense claims of the employee, go to Expense Reports menu from Employee’s Profile.  Employees can view their own expense claims, add new ones and send them for approval.

  Accounting and Finance system should already be configured by administrators so that, employees are able to add expense claims; otherwise, expense errors might occur while adding them. Please contact your administrator to setup Accounting and Finance module for your company.
