Had to prove I traveled a certain number of miles. I asked (in an email) if their car prints out receipts for miles driven, because mine isn't that fancy.

They didn't respond.

I keep my expenses above board but have always wondered if there’s something in place to stop those who don’t, as I know managers (I work in tax) don’t normally check expenses on client codes, and that expenses can also be claimed just as a “firm” expense.

Yes, twice. In L&D and had to expense training materials via amazon for a conference, they came up in an audit. Sponsoring partner signed - especially as they were purchased at her request.

Which firm OP

Yes once. Keep all receipts!

How far back do they go to? Can’t imagine I need to keep all these receipts for all the traveling

No but I’ve conducted expense reviews.

There are teams that focus of different areas of expense policy. Could be automatically selected due to meal going over amt per person (for example) or your manager can request an in depth review if something doesn’t look right.
