Some companies allow you to claim a daily subsistence allowance to cover the cost of meals and lodging during your trip.
For travel to certain countries, you may be required to claim a statutory "per diem" allowance instead of a daily allowance, depending on the configuration at your site. If this is the case, see Per Diem Allowances.
The expense form for a daily allowance looks like this:
You enter the start and finish dates and times of the trip, and the Expense tool takes care of the calculations.
To claim a daily allowance:
On your expense report, click Add an expense.
Scroll down and click Daily allowance.
Complete the Add an expense form, entering the location and the start and end dates and times of the trip.
Complete the cost allocation details if required.
