Expense Claim Payers, as defined in this Guide, are persons who expend personal funds on behalf of the company, including directors, proprietors not using capital accounts, and all other persons. They are one of three types of Payers for whom expense claims can be entered. The others are Members created in the Capital Accounts tab and Employees.
