On average 19% of UK office workers admit to exaggerating an expense claim, whether it’s claiming that weekend meal back or an extra 5 miles on that business trip - if it can go unnoticed, it might be all too tempting for your employees.
‘Rounding up’ mileage is a common occurrence in businesses, typically adding another £5-10 to a mileage claim may seem so minuscule at the time, but per employee, it can have long-term detrimental effects.
With over 47% of those admitting to fiddling with expenses also exaggerating on mileage claims, it becomes that small crack in your windscreen that goes unnoticed at first but the longer you leave it the more severe the damage.
