You create an Expense Report with a Business Trip from Germany to a foreign country. You expect that in the Expense Report under lodging per diems the Tax-exempt Amount and the Reimbursement Amount should not be the same. However this is not the case, both amounts are the same. The Income-Related Expense is therefore zero. Instead you expect that the system calculates Income-Related Expenses.

Reproducing the Issue
Go to the Travel and Expenses Work Center.
- Switch to the Expense Reports View.
- Show all Expense Reports, select the desired report and press Go.
- Press Preview - Reimbursement Details.
- Scroll down until you find the section lodging per diems.
You can see that the Tax-Exempt Amount and the Reimbursement are the same. The Income-Related Expense is therefore zero as well.
In Germany no Income-Related Expenses are calculated for lodging per diems for Business Trips from Germany to foreign countries. These Income-Related Expenses are zero. Therefore the Tax-exempt Amount and the Reimbursement Amount have to be the same.
The system works as expected. According to German Law the Income-Related Expenses are zero for lodging per diems from Germany to foreign countries.
