expenses


expenses
   an additional tax-free income
   In standard usage, payments incurred by an employee in the course of his duties and reimbursed by the employer. There are few who spend less freely on personal comforts when the employer is paying the cost and often the disbursement may not have been made as claimed. Thus expense-account living is synonymous with extravagance and excess:
    ... colleagues who scrabble around in boardrooms and come in late (if at all) for Questions, with expense-account fumes on their breath. (A. Clark 2000, commenting on his fellow Members of Parliament)
