Expense types are the different categories of expenses. The application administrator can create different expense types according to their organization needs.

Expense Type also allows the administrator to define either that expense types require quantity input in expense entry. In case of “Car Mileage” where users are required to enter “Miles/Kilometer” in expense entry, an administrator can enable quantity field with its own defined caption in expense type.
