If you are in sales or another job that involves frequent driving and meetings with clients, you can use this form for reporting miles driven and reimbursable expenses. Use a separate mileage tracking log if you typically visit many clients and locations in a single day and need to record the business purpose and notes about the visits. This form also lets you report expenses paid using the company card.
Important: When you pay for business meals or business entertainment, such as meetings with potential clients, you must keep records of the location, business purpose, business relationship, and the amount of each expense . See the references below for more details about record keeping requirements.
Remember: Submit receipts and other supporting documentation (especially documentation regarding business meals and entertainment) along with the expense report.
