What are Expense Regulations?

Expenses are defined as the out-of-pocket expenses incurred by employees in the performance of their duties, such as travel expenses or accommodation costs

The Swiss Federal Tax Administration stipulates that expenses must be business-related and can only be reimbursed against original receipts. Thus, expenses are a labor-intensive and error-prone process for companies.

The expense regulations uniformly define under which conditions which expenses – if necessary to what extent – are reimbursed to employees. It is an important administrative tool for companies that simplifies the processes involved in expense reimbursement.
