When you are uploading a receipt to your expense we do support an optical character recognition. That means we recognize vendor, date and amount on the receipt and it will automatically filled into the fields on your expense. For currency and tax it depends if it matches to the OCR name (e.g. if you tax name is MwSt. 19% but on receipt it is MwSt – 19%).
You can activate this feature when you go to Settings/Preferences/Expenses -> Use OCR on expenses
Note: When the OCR doesn’t read the receipt properly send us the receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org so, we can improve the OCR. Of course you can also just contact our friendly customer service who is always happy to help.
