Expensify offers multiple ways to create a bill on the web. This allows you to easily add bills to your Expensify account for tracking all your company expenses in one place!

This feature is available to:

  • Group policy users: perfect for businesses who want to send invoices to clients/customers.
  • Individual policy users: perfect for contractors, personal business owners, or anyone who wants to send invoices to clients/customers.
  • Users with a private email address linked to their Expensify account (not available to users with a gmail, hotmail, etc email).

Below is a breakdown of the three options you have to create a bill in Expensify

1) Upload a physical bill in Expensify

If you receive a physical bill, you can manually upload the bill and pay the bill in Expensify.

  1. Sign-in your Expensify account at www.expensify.com.
  2. Go to the Reports Page > click New Report and choose Bill
  3. Add the expense details and vendor's email address to the pop-up window.
  4. Upload a pdf/image of the bill. 
  5. Click Submit.


This option requires a connected business bank account to pay the bills. If you don't see the Bill option in the drop-down list, first connect a business bank account at Settings > Account > Payments.


2) Receive bills in Expensify

Simply ask your vendors to email all your invoices to [yourdomain.com]@expensify.cash

Example, if your domain is "example.com" your billing email is "[email protected]", include the .com/.gov/.io/etc.

The invoices will be SmartScanned automatically, then appear as a bill for approval and payment in Expensify. The bill will be received under the specific account listed as the Primary Contact under Settings > Domains > [Domain Name] > Domain Admin.

3) Forward a bill to Expensify

If your bills are emailed to you, you can forward those bills to [yourdomain.com]@expensify.cash

Once the SmartScan process completes, the bill will display on the Reports page of the Domain Admin's account.

This user will be able to Pay the bill and share it with others.
