An expense model tells what expense categories are allowed on a particular type of work order. For example, you might have a separate expense model for each tenant or client your maintenance department serves. For more about expense models, see Accounting Facilities.

Expense models are only available if you have licensed the MainBoss Accounting module.

When you create a work order, you must specify the expense model to be used. If, for example, you have an expense model for each tenant, you can say, "We're doing work for Tenant X, so I just specify the Tenant X expense model."

When creating an expense model, we strongly recommend doing so in the following order:

  1. Create the expense categories first (using Coding Definitions | Work Orders | Expense Categories). For more, see Expense Categories.
  2. Create the expense model record and save it.
  3. Go to the expense model record's Expense Mappings section and create the expense mappings. For more, see Expense Mappings.
  4. Save the expense model record again (if necessary), then set the default expense categories in the Details section of the expense model record.

For information on viewing expense models, see Viewing Expense Models. For how to create and edit expense models, see Editing Expense Models. For printing expense models, see Printing Expense Models.
