A report is usually demanded by the higher-ups or departments’ heads for the expenses incurred during travel made for work purposes by employees. This report is named the Employee Travel Expense Report. Such a report is necessary when outstation travel expense is to be reimbursed for the employee. Many businesses, however, opt to make a monthly pre-decided amount added to the salary of the employee if frequent travel is in the job description. In situations where such an arrangement is not made, employers ask for a report to ensure that the employee is not adding unnecessary or avoidable expenditures to the company’s cost.
Employee Travel Expense Report is made depending on the requirement of the entity’s policy or demand of the employer. That can either be what the employer had already specified in a pre-set template or depending on the mode of transportation, the reason for travel, and other such factors.
