Content from our United Kingdom office from our UK office

More than eight in 10 workers have never had expense claims challenged or declined, according to research by software company Webexpenses.

It found that 42% of workers felt they could make fraudulent claims that would be unlikely to be challenged, providing they were “sensible”.

The most common claim was for transport (57% of respondents), with almost half of those claiming for mileage extending the number of miles they had travelled. According to 43% this was acceptable because “everyone over-claims” so they did not see an issue with it.

More than half of workers (51%) believed that if they travelled for work, they deserved a treat, and 16% confessed to treating themselves, their partner or children while away on a business trip.

Just over a quarter (26%) had specifically asked taxi drivers for blank receipts so they could exaggerate the cost.

Businesses could be losing around £100m a year to falsified and exaggerated claims, calculated Webexpenses, with the average number of false claims reported as 11.
