Not all workers are lucky enough to get an expense account with their job, but those who do are apparently using it to their advantage. While most workers likely stick to using their account for actual business expenses, according to CFOs there are plenty of people who try to get reimbursed for things that really have nothing to do with their job.
A new Robert Half poll finds that 53% of CFOs have seen an increase in inappropriate expense report requests, and some are sharing the types of outrageous expenses people have tried to get through.
For example someone tried to get reimbursed for a trip to Italy, while another actually tried to get a company to pay their taxes. Others tried to get their company to reimburse them for things like childcare and pet sitting, while others put in for household items and apparently someone even tried to expense a Lamborghini.
Other outrageous things workers put on their expense reports include:
- Bear rug
- Pogo stick
- Moving a horse trailer
- Kids' clothing
- Cat litter
- Bed bug removal
- Chicken statue with a top hat
