This add-on is only available if you are running a financial program, using the Pro model and running in a single country.
To enable this add-on you must contact your account manager.
Our expenses add-on allows your budget holders to spend their recognition budget on a recognition related expense that is outside of the system. For example, if they want to send some flowers, chocolates or go out for something to eat/drink.
Budgets holders cannot claim for just anything - the expense must be connected to a recent recognition e.g within the last 30 days (this time period can be configured by you) and you define the types of suppliers they can use (e.g. Restaurant, Flowers, etc.).
