The Settlement Amount is the total value of an expense report, which includes e.g. paid by company expenses which are of course not reimbursed to the traveler. The Reimbursement Amount is what is reimbursed to the traveler in total. So, depending on the expenses of an expense report, the Settlement Amount can be higher than the Reimbursement Amount. If, for example, the traveler receives an advance and later gets further reimbursed, the Reimbursement Amount would consider the advance plus the additional reimbursement.
