If they looked at time stamps of "breakfasts" half the advisory group would be fired.

Well, the only people I know who have been audited have been subsequently fired. So can't imagine it's a good experience.

^so you know these people well enough that 1) they told you they got audited and 2) that they got fired, but you don't know the details?

They look into breakfast times when they feel like it, and it sucks to go through it. Amex has the timestamps even though you can't see in gt&e. No religious, personal, health excuse seems to work.

So, you're saying that an audit firm is suspicious and tends to be detail oriented? Huh.

I'm just wondering what u audit? No one has receipts

I'm guessing they look into suspicious purchases and hope you admit something. Or find a pattern that seems unlikely (ex. You had one weekly expense every week for 15 weeks for a "cash" dinner) and hope you cave.

@D1 Yes, I was acquainted with them, knew of the audits, then heard through Partners that they were let go due to findings. @OP My guess is that they look very closely at what's been charged in and make sure the system isn't being taken advantage of or fraudulent activity isn't going on. Thinking they probably cross reference expenses with travel records and your team members' expenses too.

To answer the original question, they send you a spreadsheet with all the money you owe them. I suppose I'd you're doing something really bad you'd get fired.
