Our team of corporate travel solution experts is here to help you understand which of your business trip expenses are legitimate and can be claimed on your expense report. Many people have to travel for their jobs and when it comes to filing expenses there may be some confusion around which expenses can be claimed and which cannot. So which business trip expenses are legitimate?
- Travel expenses. Airfare, car hire, taxi cabs to and from a business destination and parking/car park fees all fall under travel expenses and can be claimed as business expenses.
- Meals while travelling for business are generally claimable, but be sure to check with your manager and find out if there is a budget. You may be allotted a certain amount of money to spend on food each day, so be mindful of the budget and don’t overspend.
- Accommodation. Whether you stay at a hotel, a bed and breakfast, or some other type of accommodation, the cost of your stay is a legitimate business trip expense. Many companies have travel departments which make the accommodation arrangements for you.
- Any expenses you incur that are directly related to your employer can generally be claimed as a business expense. For example, if you are on an international business trip and your work mobile breaks, you will most likely need to purchase a new one as soon as possible. Always check with your boss first to avoid having to pay out of your pocket unexpectedly.
