When almost half (48%) of employees think it’s acceptable to over-expense or disregard company expense policies on a yearly basis, it's time to make the case for taking expense fraud more seriously - to understand the reasons behind it and the technology challenges that need to be overcome.
The vast majority of employees will need to claim expenses in some part of their professional life. However, just because it’s a common occurrence, doesn’t mean a relaxed approach should be taken.
In 2020, the median loss to a company of any size from expense report fraud was around €28,500 and, on average, employees think it’s acceptable to knowingly submit a fraudulent claim of up to €125.
On top of employee behaviour, businesses waste hours checking and rechecking claims with outdated, manual processes, creating the perfect storm for lost profits.
