Expenses

The Expense Object

A Rutter Expense represents a purchase made by a business entity via prepaid card, credit card, bank, or other asset. Every expense is linked to a credit Account and a Vendor.

The expense line item contains information regarding the items purchased and accounts affected in the expense. Every expense line item is linked to a debit Account and optionally linked tracking categories like Classes, Locations, and Departments.
