What is the difference between expense and cost ? what is the phrase to describe all the cost for one person in one day?

  • Perhaps 'per diem' ('per day') is the phrase you're looking for. – JEL Mar 9 '16 at 19:06
  • You seem to be asking two questions. Best to post them as separate questions. – MetaEd Mar 9 '16 at 19:36

An 'expense' is made or possessed by a subject, usually a person or group.

Example:

The team's total expenses for the week are (xyz).

A 'cost' is a quality held by a subject, usually an item or set of items.

Example:

The item's total cost is (xyz).

Hope this helps.
