Expense Reimbursement Policy

The Expense Reimbursement Policy is a document that outlines an organization's rules on how employees will receive a refund when they spend their money on any work-related transaction or purchase.

Employees should not use their money to pay for business-related expenses, but when they do, they should be refunded. For example, an employee that spends their money to purchase an office printer for the organization should receive full compensation for the printer.

However, it is important to note that there reimbursable and non-reimbursable expenses. Reimbursable expenses are costs incurred by the employee that is to be funded or reimbursed by the employer. For example, all work-related expenses are reimbursable expenses. Non-reimbursable expenses are costs that are not to be refunded by the employer. Examples of such are expenses not related to the employee's work for the employer.

Therefore, every organization requires an Expense Reimbursement Policy to inform its employees about the categories of expenses that may be refunded or reimbursed and the type of costs that can be repaid by the employer. It also provides a procedure for obtaining a refund.
