Compensations*: Compensations are referred to as "one time payments" that an employee can receive. Compensations can entail an untaxed amount that can be set by the organization. Examples for Compensation are the completion of e-learning courses (a one-time payment as an employee benefit), or extra hours that employees worked and need to be paid extra.

*These options are not mandatory, and can be turned off by the Administrator if they do not apply to the organization.

Using e-mail

When an expense has been made by an employee, and an invoice was received by e-mail it can simply be forwarded to inbox@declaree.com. The E-Mail must be forwarded from the e-mail address that is used to login to Declaree. A new expense will then be created, and can be completed by adding the total amount and categories before you submit the expense. 

Please note that when using the inbox functionality, the expense that has been created by the system needs to be checked and completed by the employee, as the OCR supports the employee with reading the information, but should not be solely relied on. Furthermore, employees must not add any additional text to the e-mail that is being forwarded, in order for the system to read its content or attachment accurately. The E-Mail address used to log into Declaree must be used. It is possible to store an alternative E-Mail address in the user profile, that can be used:
