Can I hand in my receipt instead of uploading or emailing it?
This depends on whether this option has been enabled for your organisation within the system settings screen. If it has, then you will still need to enter purchases into ExpensePlus, but just leave the receipt section blank. When you select 'confirm', you will see a popup. Select the 'Hand in Receipt' option and follow the instructions.
(If this feature is not enabled in your system, you will need to speak with a member of your finance team to discuss whether it would be useful. They can find out how to turn it on by consulting this help guide article).
You will be asked to write a unique reference number on the receipt before handing it in. Receipts that are handed in still need to be uploaded into ExpensePlus. Once they reach the office, they will get scanned and turned into individual receipt PDFs, then uploaded in bulk on the 'check receipts' screen. Once uploaded into ExpensePlus, the unique reference written on the receipt makes it easy to match it to the expense (and then go through the same process as other receipts).
To avoid the office having to scan in and upload receipts - if you are able to, why not upload or email receipts into ExpensePlus? Many users use mobile phones or tablets to enter purchases (doing this, you can simply take a picture of your receipt - we've even created a button in ExpensePlus to allow you to do this).
