Why Build and Use the Expense Custom Report

With the Expense Custom Report, you can obtain the following information:

  1. Get the list of all the expenses along with their current statuses.
  2. Receive a categorized and itemized list of expenses made on behalf of the company.
  3. Analyze how much money was spent and determine what was purchased.

The report will provide you with fresh and up-to-date information as you are able to set the filters for a certain period you are interested in.
