Expenses paid through Payroll

I use sage payroll and accounting.

My payroll journals balance (obviously) but I want to record expenses which are paid through payroll, in sage so as to show petrol receipts, hotels, car parking etc as an expense.

Should I be using gross pay or gross taxable pay in my original journal?

1) How to enter it in the future

2) How to rectify past entries.

I would think you should only use the payroll entries for your journals and not the re-imbursed expenses, then journal the expenses in separately, eg debit motor expenses, credit bank. Be careful in casethere are any P11D reportable values.
