Logging mileage and paying the expense to employee/director

I notice you have now added the mileage feature for Ltd companies - Great.
I understand how to log the mileage but how does Kashflow account for paying the expense to the employee? Currently we have an expense account for out of pocket expenses where we currently track mileage, every month we pay those expenses from the business account to the employee, we track that in Kashflow as a transfer from the business account to the out of pocket expenses account. Support have said there is no way (currently) we can pay mileage using the new feature,

    Hi Gary,

    When creating a bank transaction to pay the mileage expenses, you should use the Out of Pocket nominal Code that you specified when setting up the mileage module. At the moment you cannot set this code to put the mileage expenses directly to a bank account, but we are planning to add that functionality in an upcoming release.

    Hi - I could really do with this feature too - it seems the most straight forward way to manage the mileage liability.
