If you are traveling on business, depending on the country or city and the duration of the business trip, a certain amount is available to you tax-free, the so-called “additional expense for meals”. This is to compensate for the additional expenses you incur when you eat on the road.
These per diems are also called “meals per diem” or “per diem”. The German Federal Ministry of Finance redefines these and other regulations for the accounting of work-related business trips at least once a year. These changes must be taken into account for correct travel expense reporting.
When you enter your business trip with the corresponding destination, Spesenfuchs automatically sets the correct per diems and accommodation allowances and saves you from incorrect travel expense reports or tedious searches for the correct values.
