The Tripcatcher Integration With Expensify
Expensify approached Tripcatcher to build an integration with them, to provide their UK customers with features specific for the UK market. And together we integrated Tripcatcher with Expensify to create the Tripcatcher Expensify account.
Expensify is one of the world’s leading Expense Management applications. If you’re using Expensify in the UK, it’s worth taking a look at Tripcatcher, as Tripcatcher complements Expensify, by providing support for those UK-specific mileage requirements.
The Tripcatcher Expensify account integrates directly with Expensify and is setup automatically for you, once you activate your Tripcatcher Expensify account.
To use Tripcatcher with Expensify, your Expensify account requires;
N.B. Tripcatcher offers mileage functionality specific for the UK (e.g. claiming VAT on mileage, claiming for passengers, automatic rate change at 10,000 miles) which is not available within Expensify.
Claim All Your Mileage Expenses
You can complete your mileage expenses anywhere, using Tripcatcher on the phone or web app. Every business wants to make claiming mileage expenses seamless and stress free which is why, if you use Expensify, you should use the Tripcatcher Expensify mileage tracker.
Tripcatcher is very easy to use, with lots of time-saving features which include:
- Save business journeys as favourites which can be easily selected next time you do the same journey;
- calculates the amount of VAT your business can claim on the fuel portion of the mileage expense;
- Google Maps for calculating the distance travelled.
Tripcatcher uses the HRMC Approved Mileage Allowance Payments for business trips made by car, van, motorbike or bicycle. Tripcatcher also allows the user to claim for passengers working for the same employer. This ensures all users are claiming the most tax efficient rates.
The mileage rates for cars/vans are automatically adjusted when you reach the 10,000 miles per annum threshold (the rate is changed from 45 pence per mile to 25 pence per mile). This ensure you and your employees claim the correct amount.
Reduce Your VAT Bill
You VAT bill is reduced by claiming back the VAT on the fuel element of your mileage claim.
Tripcatcher automatically selects the correct VAT rate depending on your car/van engine type eg diesel 2.1 litre. If you have opted to claim back VAT, the expense claim including the VAT element is submitted to Expensify.
You can save £100s by claiming the VAT on your mileage expenses. Examples of VAT saving are shown below:
