Expense Type

Expense Types are the data items used to define rates applied to the specific types of reimbursable expenses, such as per diems or miles.

The Expense Types are associated to Expense Codes, so that when a worker selects an expense code while creating an expense sheet, all the associated expense amounts will be automatically calculated.

For instance, if Joe, a U.S.-based worker, had to drive to a WorkingNet location other than to the one which he has been assigned, he can get reimbursed for the cost of fuel.

The Expense Type 'Fuel' is associated to the Fuel expense code.

Navigating the Expense Type Admin Object

Select Expense Type from the Financial Data section of the admin menu to view a list of expense types that have been configured for WorkingNet’s tenant.

Create an Expense Type

WorkingNet commonly hires workers who will travel to client locations. In such instances, the worker will often need to use their personal mobile phones for both voice and data communication. WorkingNet has decided to offer those workers a monthly stipend they can put toward their mobile phone bill.

As the SAP Fieldglass administrator for WorkingNet, you will need to add a new mobile phone expense type and associate it to an expense code so workers can submit that expense.
