Course Description

Game playing with expense reports is a widespread problem which many organizations choose to ignore. This is unfortunate, for if ignored, it will only grow. Creativity when preparing an expense reimbursement request is not a desirable approach. Yet, from the numerous stories shared with the speaker by AP Now’s readers, that is precisely what is going on in many, many organizations.

This session will start with a discussion of the magnitude of this issue and why every organization should take it seriously. We’ll then share the results of a recent study on what companies are requiring as far as receipts. The remainder of the session will focus on the different games some employees play when attempting to get reimbursed for more than they actually spent along with tactics you can use to stop this problematic behavior.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify common expense reimbursement fraud schemes used by employees;
  • Identify best practices for implementing strong controls to deter expense reimbursement fraud;
  • Discover how to integrate IRS requirements into your organization’s T&E policy; and
  • Recognize characteristics of a tight expense reimbursement policy that will prevent misconceptions about your expense reimbursement policy.
