It is very easy to hide a gift card, a couple of extra beers, or other merchandise within a restaurant receipt, even when the company policy clearly spells out what can and cannot be expensed.
This article from Business Travel Executive – Dig In to Dining Spend, discusses the business dining industry as a whole and digs into some of the issues with expense reporting and new technologies trying to help expense managers and businesses better manage this sometimes volatile expense category.
George Roscoe, Director of Marketing at InterplX, is quoted several times throughout the article. With his unique insight from reviewing the results of years of client expense reporting audit results, he is able to discuss some of the challenges with balancing the policy rules for spend compliance without making it too burdensome for the user to enter the additional information required.
