Vendor Expenses and Other Expense Types

Get Started with Vendor Expenses


Vendor expenses are expenses associated with a project and submitted as a bill from a vendor. For example, say you have an engineering company. You’re working on a project that’ll use a specific type of concrete. You want a third party to advise you before you use it. The third-party will send you a bill, which you’ll log as a vendor expense in BigTime.

Vendor expenses give you the means to log third party expenses without relying on your accounting system to enter the vendor bill. Simply choose the vendor expense option when you’re ready to submit this expense. You can submit vendor expenses alongside your other expenses.
