Travel expense reports
Have you been on a business trip? Here you will find information about what to include in and how to submit your travel expense report.
Travel expense reports for both domestic and international travel, with associated expenses, must always be filed immediately after completing your trip, and within a year at most. It is not possible to register receipts in Primula dated more than one year prior. This also applies to private expenses not linked to any trip.
Log into Primula web using your Lucat identity. Further instructions on how to fill in an expense report are available in Primula web.
Report VAT in your expense report
Only Swedish VAT can and must be reported. Report the VAT when registering your expenses in your travel expense report in Primula web.
Expenses in other currencies
Have you had expenses in other currencies? Enter the correct exchange rate for the date of the expense: Check bank statements or calculate based on examples from:
If you are using an account statement or a currency conversion receipt, the document is to be attached in the system.
If you have received a travel advance it must be reported and deducted from the travel expense report.
Travel advances are granted in exceptional circumstances. The preferred mode of procedure is to use a charge card with personal payment liability.
Contact your immediate human resources officer for more information about travel advances.
Attachments to your travel expense report
The following documents shall be attached to the travel expense report you submit to your line manager/relevant officer:
- Conference programme/participants or other documents proving that you did in fact travel and that it was a business trip.

For domestic and international business travel you are entitled to reimbursement of your travel expenses and to receive subsistence allowance.
Reimbursements are provided to you via the travel expense report which you file after your business trip has been completed.
