Within Teamwork, you can add budget expenses to a project's budget, allowing you to account for any additional individual costs that maybe required beyond logged time. 

Note: The budget expenses feature is available on per-user Grow/Premium subscriptions and above.

Site administrators, project administrators, and users with permission to manage project budget can create budget expenses.

Expenses added to a financial budget will be taken into account when calculating the project's budget usage progress. For example:

Billable time cost of $500 + budget expenses of $100 = $600 of project budget used.

Time budgets do not count budget expenses towards the project's budget usage.

Note: Expenses added to the Billing area of your project do not relate to budget expenses and work independently of project budgets.


Viewing budget expenses


Go to the Finance tab of your project and select the Budgets subsection.



The Budget expenses section will display each existing expense in an individual row, listed in the order in which they were added to the project. 

For each expense, you will see the associated cost, details, and creator.

  • Search - search for existing expenses based on associated cost amount or details.
  • Filter - filter the list of expenses based on creator (user) or associated tag(s).
  • Export - export the expenses in PDF or Excel format.
