Billable and Reimbursable Status


When adding an expense to your expense report, you are given the option to classify each expense as Billable or Non-Billable, and Reimbursable or Non-Reimbursable. This article shows you when you should classify an expense as billable and/or reimbursable.

Billable - An expense should be classified as billable if it needs to be paid by a third party, such as an outside client or vendor

Non-Billable - If the expense does not involve a third party or outside vendor, the expense should not be classified as billable

Reimbursable - An expense should be classified as reimbursable if it is something a user paid out of pocket and needs to be reimbursed by the company; any expenses charged to a personal credit card should be classified as reimbursable

Non-Reimbursable - An expense is classified as non-reimbursable if the user does not expect to be reimbursed; anything charged on a company credit card should be classified as non-reimbursable

    Hello Gregory,

    Your company has hidden the reimbursable status from view. All expenses will default to reimbursable automatically. Imported expenses from your credit card, however, will default to non-reimbursable automatically.
