  • An expense report is a form that an employee fills out. They list all expenses they have paid out of there pocket for work purposes. Let’s say I go on a business trip and I pay for my airline ticket, meals, hotels, rental car, etc. out of my own pocket. I would then fill out an expense report listing all these costs and turn it into my employer. They would then reimburse me for these costs.

  • What Is An Expense Report

  • An expense report is a list of what you have paid or consumed on certain particular period. In accounting, those will be further classified according to its purpose like Expenses on Selling, Administrative, Marketing, etc. It does not always have to be paid in cash, it would also include those that were charged to credit/account. It is also important that the expenses are recognized when it was incurred and not when it was paid (based on accrual accounting). However, for Cash Accounting, all expenses are recorded when it was paid.
