This report may be broken down to small subsets of the business to determine how much money each area is costing the company. Expense reports must be maintained for accuracy to ensure that the company is not spending unaccounted for money. Expense reports are also supplied to the Internal Revenue Service each year for tax purposes. During a downturn, companies often turn to expense reports to determine which areas of the business they can cut back on or eliminate to increase profits.
2.Detailed log of expenses recorded by an employee that is submitted to an employer either for reimbursement or tracking of any money spent. Some of these expenses are then able to be deducted by an employer on their yearly tax return form.
