Online expenses application

Belgian Red Cross-Flanders has 250 branches and close to 14,000 volunteers. They are entitled to an expense allowance capped by law.

In 2011, we developed an online application for registering volunteers’ expenses, which can be accessed via the volunteer website. The application complies with all statutory procedures and tax rules.

The treasurers began using the online expenses application in 2011. In November 2012, the application was opened up to all volunteers, so that they can enter their own expenses online. The application cuts the amount of paperwork involved in the reimbursement of expenses and may protect volunteers from the consequences of exceeding tax thresholds.  To reinforce its importance, use of the application became mandatory from the start of 2012.
