organize your expense report

If you travel for business and have to do expense reports, make it simpler to get them done! Designate one spot for collecting your receipts when you travel. This might be in your wallet, in the zipper pocket of your purse, in a plastic envelope, or in the front pocket of your briefcase. Choose a place that makes sense to you and works well with what you carry with you when you travel.

If you are reimbursed for mileage on your personal vehicle, then I suggest that you keep a clipboard, pen and mileage log in your car. Click here to print our mileage log. It might be wise to print several at a time and keep them with you for each month or week you travel.

When you get home from a business trip, fill out your expense report right away — while the details of the trip are still fresh in your mind. If it’s something you truly dread, getting it out of the way quickly will make it easier (plus you won’t waste the energy anticipating the ugly task ahead.)
