Save on costs with reimbursements over prepaid cards

Wondering whether you should give your teams prepaid cards, or take the reimbursement route? What organisations often swap for the convenience of prepaid cards, is higher costs.  

But with reimbursements, there’s better limits on how people spend when being reimbursed, reducing the risk of overspending or spending out of policy—since there’s no need to return anything spent out of policy. 

Track and report on reimbursements

Reimbursements FAQ’s

What is expense reimbursement?

Expense reimbursement is when employers pay back their employees for work-related expenses out of their own pocket. Proper documentation, such as receipts or invoices, is usually required to support reimbursement claims and ensure compliance with company policies and tax regulations.  

How are expenses submitted in Capture Expense?

Your teams take a photo of their receipt from the Capture Expense app, which will automatically generate the expense by prepopulating the claim using data from the receipt. Once they submit this and have received approval on their spend, the expense will be ready to reimburse. 

What types of expenses are typically reimbursed?

Typical reimbursed expenses include: 

  1. Travel expenses: Such as airfare, lodging, rental cars, and mileage. 
  2. Meals and entertainment: Costs incurred during business meetings, client lunches, or team outings. 
  3. Transportation: Including public transit fares, taxi rides, or parking fees. 
  4. Office supplies: Necessary items purchased for work-related tasks. 
  5. Professional development: Fees for conferences, workshops, or training courses. 
  6. Communication expenses: Such as cell phone bills or internet expenses if used for work purposes. 
  7. Miscellaneous expenses: Other business-related costs, like shipping fees or business-related subscriptions. 

Specific reimbursable expenses may vary depending on company policies and the nature of the employee’s job.

Are reimbursed expenses taxable?

Reimbursed expenses are typically not considered taxable income for employees if they are for legitimate business purposes and are reimbursed according to the company’s accountable plan. An accountable plan is one that requires employees to provide documentation for their expenses and return any excess reimbursements. As long as the reimbursement process meets the criteria of an accountable plan, the reimbursements are not subject to income tax or payroll taxes. 

Why is a reimbursement approach better than pre-paid cards?

A reimbursement approach helps you save on costs as there are better limits on how people spend when being reimbursed, reducing the risk of overspending or spending outside of policy associated with pre-paid cards. Enforcing expense policies is more straightforward with reimbursement since there is no need to return anything spent out of policy, simplifying compliance and adherence to company guidelines.
