Step 2: Set Basic Company Rules

  • Create an expense policy to set basic company rules such as output currency, mileage reimbursement rate, max expense age & amount, etc.
  • The amount of rules you will be able to set will depend on whether you are using a Team or Corporate policy.

Step 3: Seamless Integrations

  • Our flexible integrations engine allows you to integrate with any accounting, CRM, HR, and ERP systems you may be using

Step 4: Set Approval Workflow

  • Approval workflow can be set to have as many levels as needed.

Step 5 (Optional): Add Company Reimbursement Account

  • Reimburse employee expense reports directly through Expensify.
  • Add the company bank account from which to withdraw funds for ACH Direct Deposit reimbursement.
