Per diem (meal allowance) in the app

From now on, you can create your per diem (meal allowance) receipt via our Lanes & Planes app and change or delete them after creation.

Creation of per diem (meal allowance) in the app

You can add the per diem expense to an existing booking or expense report.

To create the receipt for a per diem, first click on an existing booking or expense report in the app. You will find these in the 'trips' section, either on the 'upcoming' or 'past' tab:



You are now in the details of your booking or expense report. Here you can click on the blue '+' on the bottom right and add a receipt with clicking on "Add Expense":

Now select the category 'Per Diem':


Now follow the instructions on the screen. You will be guided through the creation step by step.

After you have added one or more countries, click on "Continue". You will now be informed that the system will carry out the calculation with the next step and that it is no longer possible to correct the countries and times.

Now the system automatically calculates the number of days, divided into arrival day, full days and departure day (example here: travel date 21.9 - 22.9.):


Now you will be asked about the received meals on your trip in two steps, first the meals on whole days, then the meals on the day of arrival or departure. Here, please select the meals you have received. 

You can then indicate whether you have received a privately paid overnight stay that you will not submit as an expense.

At the end, confirm that you have stayed within the "3-month period":


You will find the receipt either in the trip selected at the beginning under "Expenses" (left picture) or in the general area of expenses (right picture):

Change/delete a per diem (meal allowance) in the app

You can change or completely delete your per diem receipt (like any other receipt created) until you have submitted the relevant trip or expense report for approval. After that, changes are not possible, unless a receipt is disputed and released for resubmission again.

To make changes, click on the relevant receipt and then scroll to 'edit' and 'delete':
