If you’re a travel-and-expense accountant, you might be seeing a lot of Airbnb receipts in the coming months—if you haven’t already, that is. According to the home-sharing platform, 250,000 companies in more than 230 countries have used it for work-related accommodations.

Now, Airbnb wants more of that market—a lot more.
