Creating an Expense

Provide a dollar amount and description in the “Subject” line of the email and attach an image of the receipt to create a new expense with the receipt already attached. For example, next time you take a taxi, just take a picture of the receipt with your phone and email it to us with the subject “$25 - Taxi” We’ll add the ride to your list of expenses with the receipt already attached.

Any receipt itineraries that are forwarded will automatically be classified as trips. The Expensify Trips feature provides you with an all-in-one app for your travel expense reporting needs. When a travel receipt/itinerary is uploaded into Expensify, the trips section of the mobile app will automatically make your trip information available to you.
