How to Create Expenses

Prerequisites: None Alternatives: None See Also: Add Items to Expenses

Symbient Opta allows for the capture and reporting of Expenses. The Expenses can be incurred by either an employee or just the company itself. You are also able to capture if the employee was reimbursed or not.

Because expenses impact accounting accounts, Symbient Opta updates the appropriate Accounts Payable, Asset (ex: Banking) and Expense accounts.
