This session of Accounts Payable Technology Week focuses on Remote Work Expense Reimbursements. Reimbursement requests for remote work expenses has become a hot issue. The panel started off with participants sharing the craziest (funniest) things they have seen or heard about on reimbursement requests. It is one of five parts of a limited series focused on fraud in the #accountspayable function.
This session is part of a limited edition five-part series on Accounts Payable Technology Week. Remote work expense reimbursements are something few organizations focused on before the pandemic. Now working from home or WFH as many refer to it is quite common place. Hence working from home expenses and tangentially remote work expense are an issue almost every organization must address.
Also discussed by the panelists were questionable expense reimbursement requests, including but not limited to reimbursement requests for food, reimbursement requests for ergonomic chairs, and other issues. Not everyone agreed on these matters.
What’s more, as mentioned by the panel during this discourse, returning to work expenses may be an issue that some will also have to address. This is session is part of the AP Now podcast brought to you by AP Now.
This is Episode 104 of the AP Now podcast.

Working from home and working remotely are now firmly established as protocols for many, many organizations. No longer is this something that only a few do. Hence, it is critical that every organization address this issue with a clear eye and a goal of treating all employees equitably. This may seem pretty straightforward at first, but when you start to delve into the matter, it becomes clear that it is not as simple as it might first appear.
One of the panelists pointed out that given the different reimbursement approaches taken, care had to be taken to ensure that duplicate payments are not made.
