ACCOUNTING - Odoo 16 Enterprise Book

Employee Expenses

There may be situations where the employee has to spend money from their personal fund to perform a project or task or complete purchases on behalf of the company. In such cases, the company is responsible for returning the money to the respective employee. An employee can record these expenses with the assistance of the Odoo Accounting module. The Employee Expenses option can be seen under the Vendors menu. Here, you can record your expenses and submit them to the manager for approval. Once you get approval from the manager, the amount mentioned in the Expense will be returned to your account.
