Frequently Asked Questions

What is business expense recovery?

Business expense recovery, or expense recovery, is any action taken to lower ongoing costs and can include recovery of money paid to suppliers. Typically, areas of focus are non-payroll, such as utilities, shipping, telecommunications, etc… Successful recoveries attribute to the bottom line and increase the profitability and value of the business.
