Women Top Expense Honesty Claims


Women are more honest than men when it comes to claiming work expenses.

Just 11% of women admitted they had submitted a false or padded expenses claim to their company, compared with 16% of men, according to Barclaycard Business.

But women who do overclaim are slightly less likely to be caught by their employer, with 93% of women claiming to have got away with it, compared with 90% of men.

Women are also quicker at getting their expenses claims in than men, with 68% of themsaying they spend up to 30 minutes a month filing their claims, something just 56% of men said they did.

"It looks like women in the workplace are more honest and better organised than their male counterparts when it comes to filling in their expense forms," Barclaycard's Michelle Tompkins said.

"But it is also clear that whether it is a male or female worker submitting a false claim the chances are that they will escape being caught out by their bosses."
