When creating an accountable plan for the IRS to keep track of reimbursements, you want your deductions to hold up to scrutiny (avoid that audit).

So, it’s a good idea to know what the plan should include:

1. Write it out. It makes everything clear to everybody in your company – and the IRS respects paper.

2. Cover how much time your employees have to submit expenses; how they ask for reimbursement, including what documents are needed; what you’ll reimburse them for; the max that you’ll reimburse; and when employees should give back leftover reimbursement money.

3. Make it crystal clear how the expenses relate to your business.

4. Expenses have to be substantiated in what’s called “a reasonable period,” AND your employee has to give back any expenses money they don’t spend in “a reasonable period.”

The point is, don’t guess. Keep everything, take no chances, and just document, document, document.
