Volunteers Out of Pocket Expenses

Hi all, Im new to Wave, but getting there, one issue I have is how to account for Volunteers Out Of Pocket expenses. So we run a small charity that has no staff and no payroll but the volunteers are entitled to claim back from the Charity, Mileage, parking, subsistence, rail, hotels costs etc when on charity business. Question is how should I account for this in Wave is it just a cost to the business against a Volunteer set up as a Vendor?, or is there some better way of doing this? Many thanks.

    You can probably set up vendors if that is your preference. Meaning each volunteer would be a vendor. I like keeping things simple. I would have the volunteer submit documentation and expense the payment to it's appropriate category or just set one expense category called Volunteer Reimbursements.
