Splitting an Expense

Follow

Some expenses may need to be split into two or more categories, departments, or projects. For example, a lodging fee may also include meals or parking expenses. This article shows you how to use the Split Expense function in Certify.

Step 1: On your account homepage, select Drafts

Step 2: Select the Name of the expense report you want to open.

Step 3: Click the arrow (>) next to the expense you would like to split. This will open the Other Actions menu. In the Other Actions menu, select Split Expense.

Step 4: On the next page, enter the Amount you would like to split. The split amount will be subtracted from the full, original expense amount. You can also make edits to the other expense fields as needed. 

The receipt image attached to the original expense will also be attached to all of the split expenses. If you would like a different receipt image to be attached to a split expense, click the green checkmark under the Receipt column. A dropdown menu will open where you can select a different receipt image to attach to the split expense. Click Split Again to continue splitting the current expense. When you have completed splitting the expense, click Save.

Step 5: On the next page, you will see that the original expense and the split expense(s) will be linked together by a dotted line under the Expense column in the expense report.

    Hello Denise,

    Yes you are able to split an expense using the mobile app. Once the expense has been synchronized to your Certify Wallet, we suggest adding the expense to an expense report, where the expense can be split. Once that has been done you can follow the above instructions from this article.

    Can you amend a split expense (for example if you entered the wrong amount)?
