Reimbursement Pay Items can be used to compensate employees for any employment related expenses they've incurred and will be classed as a non-taxable allowance. You can create any custom reimbursements by clicking on the green plus.
By default PayHero includes the 'Expense Reimbursement' pay item which can be attached to a Work Type for employees to file expense requests against. You can learn more about setting these up in our Expenses support article.
Creating a Reimbursement Pay Item
Fixed - The reimbursement amount will remain the same and can either be applied directly to an employee's Default Pay, or as a one off from within the Draft Pay.
Variable - Select variable to set a different rate for the reimbursement under each employee’s default pay or the Pay Item can be added as a one off during a Draft Pay. A variable rate expense can also be attached to a work type as the expense Pay Item for employees to submit expense requests.
Track Balance - Allows you to keep a record of the total amount of expenses reimbursed if the Pay Item is included in an employee's default pay.
