Expenses Hub

Your hub for expenses and expense claims

System updates

We are currently undertaking a process of reviewing and updating some of the expense type categories and field names.
While we do this you may find that some of the images and videos in the guidance material do not exactly match what you see in the live system. There are no functionality changes.

Welcome to the new site for expenses. This site has been designed to complement the new Expense Management system which the University has now rolled out to all departments.  

Please note: The Concur expenses system is currently just for staff on the UK payroll, for anybody else the forms can be found here

The site will be hub for everything expenses related; not only will it allow staff to claim expenses, but it will also be a source of information about expense policiesrates, pre-travel requirements and guidance on how to use the new system. The hub currently features an FAQs section and it will also host news updates on how the new expenses system is rolling out across the University. 

You will need to be logged in with Raven in order to see the training materials, they are all under the Using Concur tab.
