claimexpenses.com is a clever tool which helps small and medium sized organisations do three things:
It does this by providing a simple and easily used form that captures this information, prompts the user to provide particular details, and sends the information to the organisation’s finance or admin department. It also produces a paper report that can be used in the normal way to claim expenses.
The tool uses software to help identify points of departure and arrival for journeys allowing accurate mileage and related carbon emissions to be calculated. The carbon footprint of different modes of travel is calculated using the UK government's official carbon emissions factors (the "DEFRA factors") to provide accurate and up-to-date figures. You can find out more about the carbon emissions methodology here.
