For companies with mobile employees that drive more than 5,000 miles a year, the type of mileage reimbursement program you administer should be at the top of your priorities. If administered incorrectly your mileage reimbursement program has the potential to put your company at great risk of a class action lawsuit or be one of the highest reimbursable expenses for the entire organization. Admittedly, mileage reimbursement can seem tricky at first, because unlike hotels, airlines or restaurants, vehicles don't provide receipts. Additionally, meeting the needs of mobile employees goes beyond just reimbursing them for gas and tolls. Mobile employees incur both fixed costs (e.g. car insurance premiums, license fees and taxes) as well as variable costs (e.g. fuel, vehicle maintenance and tire wear) when they drive.
