Expense Expertise

e-learning module

An innovative e-learning module to help companies tackle the problem of poor compliance from incorrect expense coding and approvals.

This innovative e-learning module has been developed to help companies tackle the problem of poor compliance from incorrect expense coding and approvals.  Expense Expertise is a short and engaging online training module aimed at individuals who approve or review expense claims. It has been designed to provide individuals with a basic knowledge of the tax issues, an understanding of what makes a good expense claim and the ability to ask the right questions. Ultimately it will also help approvers to embed a compliant expense culture within their teams.
 
How does it work?

  • It is a simple web based (iPad compatible) online training platform
  • The training module is 20 minutes long, self-service with full audit trail
  • It can be accessed directly from the internet or hosted on company learning management systems
  • The aim is to empower the authoriser to raise valid queries and challenge potentially incorrectly coded claims.

What are the benefits to your organisation?

  • Improves compliance by providing expense approvers with knowledge to question inputs
  • Educates the gatekeeper in the expense cycle about the importance of accurate reporting
  • Assists the company in paying the correct amount of income tax, corporation tax and VAT
  • Aligns with HMRC’s focus on process, governance, training and Senior Account Officer compliance
  • Helps to control costs within the organisation by embedding a robust process.

The course has been designed to be thought-provoking and informative in approaching this technical area in an innovative manner. The content is produced to a high standard, meaning that it is both engaging and entertaining. Additional company specific customisation can also be undertaken, including developing additional content or refocusing the case studies for alternative audiences such as expense claimants, shared service operators or those managing accounts payable.
