Can you set up a column to enter Tips after tax is calculated for meals and entertainment.  Ideally, I would like to see Meals + Tax + Tips = Amount.  The Tip column can pop up when you are entering expenses for meals.  Our tax system doesn't allow tips to be taxable so the tax calculation is incorrect if you include it in the basic cost of the meal.

Hi Lori,

You could create a custom field at the expense level and call it tips. This currently will not add into the total amount.

Let me know if you have already explored that option. Click on the below link to learn more about setting up custom fields.

I will check with the concerned product manager to see if anything is planned for including tips into expenses.

Thanks,

Hi Lori,

I have got an update from the product manager that nothing is planned for this right now. I have marked this as an idea. We will consider this during future planning sessions.

Thanks,
Lingaraj

Thanks Lingaraj.  There is no point in adding a new field if it will not add to the total amount. I guess I will have to sit tight until the idea becomes fruition.

Hi Lori,

Another option to consider is setting up a separate expense code for tips. Users would have to enter tips on a separate line item, but you can set up the expense code so no taxes are applied.
