Configure the impact on meal vouchers
Access: Admin Area > Expense reports > Open Profiles and Groups
- Click on the expense report profile concerned
- Select the expense type that have to deduct a meal voucher or the company contribution (usually that concerns 'Midday meal')
- Go to 'Meal vouchers' and select:
- Do nothing: this expense type won't have any impact on meal vouchers
- Deduct meal voucher from sender
- Deduct employer contribution from amount to be reimbursed
- Check 'Deduct meal voucher from internal invitees' to deduct a meal voucher to invitees
In 'Controls input', we recommend to disable 'Authorize this expense type several times a day' because an expense of this type is only selected once a day. The software will deduct only one meal voucher per day maximum.
Deduct the company contribution of the total amount of the expense report
In Expense reports, the total amount of deduction of the company contribution is displayed in the detail of the reimbursement.
The line "Company contribution" then corresponds to the number of expenses deducting the company contribution, multiplied by the amount of the company contribution (in the currency of reimbursement).
If you print it, this information is available in the total amounts:
