NEW! Travel reports and logbook in SimplBooks
Use a new possibility to enter business travel reports and logbooks as separate documents in SimplBooks!
Together with the expense reports added in the spring, these three documents cover the need for cost documents of most of the company’s reporting agents and employees. You can enter business trips, various work-related travel expenses, and both daily and trip-related expense reports. Read more about expense reports in this blog post: Expense reports in SimplBooks.
Travel report expenses are prepared by an employee of the company or the reporting person if he or she is on a business trip. A business trip is considered to be work performed outside the work area defined in the employment contract, which is usually with the accuracy of a city or rural municipality. The mission statement reflects daily subsistence allowances related to the mission and, like the statement of expenses, other trip-related documents. According to the laws currently in force in Estonia, daily allowances for business trips have tax-free limits and, in the case of business trips, minimums too. At the same time, for example, in the case of a business trip within Estonia, there is no tax-free daily allowance, but any daily allowance payment must be treated as a special benefit.
The company has the right to pay a member of the management board or an employee compensation for the use of a personal car for travel necessary for work, i.e. car compensation. At the time of writing this blog post, the tax-free benefit rate in Estonia is 335 EUR in one calendar month. The basis for compensation is the same logbook.
