In the above example, a default template and a gross value entry method are already selected for you. If these are correct for your claim, you can immediately start entering the details of you claim.

Otherwise, simply select the correct template and entry method from the provided dropdowns before continuing. 

Once you have filled in all the required fields, you should see a screen similar to the one below:

If you need to claim for more items, just click the Add item option to enter more lines as before.

Once you have finished your claim, just click the submit button. Unlike the timesheet submission, there is no warning screen, so please ensure the details you have entered are correct prior to clicking the submit button.

If you need check details of your submitted expense claim, or to see if your manager has approved them, click “Unauthorised” on the Timesheet menu. Note that rejected expenses will reappear in your “rejected” section and approved expenses will appear in your “approved” section automatically.

You can now view the status and summary of your submitted expense claim. By clicking the relevant expense item you will be able to see a detailed view of the expense. Note that you will only be able to modify rejected expense claims.

Please note: Expenses are only paid upon receipt of funds from the client. Please check your client's payment terms with Syntax to ensure you know when you may receive funds.  


  • Submitted: A submitted expense is one that you have created and submitted for approval. Submitted expenses cannot be modified, so ensure the details are correct before submitting.

  • Approved: An approved expense entry is one that has been approved by your manager for payment. This will be paid on the next relevant payment run.

  • Rejected: A rejected expense entry is one that has been rejected by your manager. The manager may have provided a comment as to why the expenses claim was rejected. Once rejected, expenses can be edited via the expense rejection menu option.
