Course Description

The processing of expense reports is the bane of many accounts payable departments. They are difficult to review, may contain multiple errors, and are subject to fraud. In the Expense Report Best Practices course, we present many ways to improve everything about the expense report, including how to deal with missing receipts, late submissions, mileage overstatements, card misuse, and much more. After implementing these suggestions, you should achieve a more efficient and reliable process for dealing with expense reports.
