03/18/13 Account Codes for Travel There has been some confusion regarding which account codes are to be used for travel-related expenses at UW – Madison.  Prior to the implementation of e-Reimbursement, the 2100 level series was used.  These codes are very generic and do not provide detailed reporting.  The 2800 level series was introduced with the release of e-Reimbursement and offers greater reporting detail which allows us to analyze each component of our travel spend.  Account codes are listed on the Accounting Services Coding website ( Going forward, please use the 2800 level series for all travel-related expenses, regardless of the payment mechanism.  If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us at  Please share this information with your departmental staff as appropriate.
