Expense items are linked to projects, not tasks, and thus will only show up on the project budget. Anybody with the Permission Level of Collaborator, or above, can add a new expense item. However, expense items must be approved by at least a Controller before it's added to the project budget.
Use cases could be for a dinner you host with your client, some equipment you needed to rent, or something you purchase on behalf of your client or directly as part of the project.
Conveniently, you can attach files to Expense Items, and you can easily specify the Cost, Price, and Markup of the expense.
After being approved by a Controller, or higher, the expense item will be added to the project budget.
