WORKING IN FINANCE, it’s likely you’ve come across some questionable expense claims in your time. Perhaps you didn’t give them as much attention as you should have. With many other tasks taking priority, expenses can often be left until last and we see many companies inadvertently adopting a more lenient approach to their expense process.

- The true damage expenses fraud can cause your business

- What HMRC is interested in and how you can ensure your process is robust
