Per diem is a daily allowance that your organization reimburses you for days when you have worked away from the office.

The per diem allowance is allocated to you according to your company's policy. You can create per diem expenses from your Fyle web app.

In order to create per diem expenses on the mobile app, you can follow the steps mentioned below:

  1. Click on the little drop-down arrow next to the Add Expense button next to the Tasks tab on your spender Dashboard. Click on Add Per Diem.

2. You will be redirected to a new Per Diem expense form. Fill in the required expense fields.

Mandatory fields include:

Per Diem Rate: Rates of daily allowance that you can claim from your company. Click on the rate of daily allowance that you wish to avail (applicable if you have multiple per-diem allowances allocated to you. Otherwise, you will see a default per-diem allowance pre-populated).

From and To Dates: Select the dates you worked away from your office. Once the days are selected, the system will capture the number of days automatically in under No. of Days.

The amount is automatically calculated based on the per diem allowance:

(Expense Amount = Per Diem Rate (or) Per Day Allowance x No of Days)

Other Details: Fill in any other expense information that is set as mandatory by your organization. The fields that are marked with an asterisk symbol next to them are mandatory in order to save the expense.

3. Once the details are filled in, click Save to save the expense.

4. The saved expense will now be visible in the Unreported tab under the Expenses section.

Following the mentioned steps, you would be able to create per diem expenses via the Fyle web app. You can now add the expenses to a report and submit them for reimbursement.
