You can write off travel expenses, but it can be hard to track expenses on the road. Use an app to track your travel expenses so you don’t have to worry about pocketing and filing paper receipts or combing through your bank statements after the trip.
Apps designed for travel allow you to upload expenses in multiple ways. For example, you can email your airline receipt, snap a photo of your out-of-town dinner, or upload a copy of your hotel receipt. You can also find apps that track your mileage using GPS, such as TripLog. With a travel expense app like IQBoxy Expenses, you have all the records you need to claim business deductions for travel at tax time – and syncing the app with your accounting software can make the process easier.
