What is expense management?
Businesses of all sizes must track their expenditure to understand their outgoings and prepare for tax filings. Expense management involves outlining policies and procedures for employees, paying for expense items, and keeping a record of this spend. Common expenses include travel for employees, client entertainment, and stationary. Accountancy software and technologies are a useful tool for businesses to streamline their expense system.
Why is expense management important?
Expense management is key for businesses to understand their finances fully. It allows you to gain a better understanding of upcoming expenses so you can plan for them, as well as reducing the time and cost involved in preparing for tax filings or audits. Outlining clear expense policy can help to minimize erroneous expense reports and employee misuse of company funds.
What is the best way to track your expenses?
Corporate and business credit cards can help make expense management easier, as all business expenditure is recorded in the same account statement. Some credit accounts also feature analytical tools, such as automatic expense categorization and receipt tracking, which can save time in the reconciliation process. There is a wide variety of accountancy software products and apps which automate expense organization.
What are allowable expenses?
Allowable expenses are outgoings which are essential for running a business. Examples include employee salaries and allowances, insurance, and accountancy costs. These are tax-deductible, which means businesses can claim them as a deduction against their income. The IRS has strict rules and regulations on allowable expenses, so it’s important to fully understand these, as breaches can result in fines and penalties.
What are the categories for business expenses?
One of the most common ways to categorize business expenses is by identifying them as operating or non-operating. Operating expenses include the Costs of Goods Sold (COGS), employee salaries, rent and insurance, as well as marketing, advertising and administrative outgoings. Non-operating expenses include taxes, interest, and impairment charges.

Expenses can also be categorized as fixed or variable. Fixed expenses are outgoings which do not fluctuate with changes in business activity, like rent or employee salaries. Variable expenses can change, with examples including marketing and advertising costs, commissions, and transaction fees.
What are examples of business expenses?
Business expenses refer to the costs that are necessary for a company to incur to operate and earn revenue. Examples include employee salaries, allowances and commissions, as well as rent for office, factory or warehouse space. Delivery and the Costs of Goods Sold (COGS) are also common business expenses, as are advertising, marketing and administrative costs.
