German term or phrase: Vertrauensspesen
I have an employment Agreement here: Bei Dienstreisen und bei der Bewirtung von Geschäftspartnern und Gästen erstattet die Gesellschaft dem XXX als **Vertrauensspesen** die tatsächlichen Kosten, die in der notwendigen Wahrnehmunng der Interessen der Gesellschaft entstehen.

So I know they are expenses that don't have to be documented by receipts, but do we have a term for this in English?


Here's an online definition of various expenses.

Spesen:

Das Gesetz sieht vor, dass ein Mitarbeiter Anrecht darauf hat, dass seine betriebsnotwendigen Auslagen ersetzt werden (Fahrzeugspesen, auswärtige Mahlzeiten oder Übernachtungen usw.). Üblich sind in der Praxis die folgenden Formen: · "Zetteliwirtschaft" (Belege auch für kleinste Auslagen bei untergeordneten Angestellten) · "Vertrauensspesen" (Abrechnung monatlich ohne Belege bei mittlerem Kader) · "Spesenpauschale" (fester monatlicher Betrag ohne Abrechnung und ohne Belege bei höherem Kader.)
