Chattertons are a firm of solicitors and providers of wealth management services, based in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.
Like many companies, they had previously been using a paper-based staff expenses system, which led to many paper-related issues.
Having never tried an automated expense management system before, Liam Osborne, ICT Director worked with the team at Point Progress to implement the MyExpenses system;
“We had inconsistences with staff claiming the “correct” amount of miles, taking into account their journey to and from the office. The staff at Point Progress have been really helpful getting us up and running on their system. It is really easy to use from a user’s perspective plus from an administrator’s perspective. I don’t envisage we will have many (if any) support calls.”
Control Over Staff Expenses
Chattertons Solicitors are now able to stay in control of their staff expenses, ensuring that all data submission is compliant, in line with HMRC regulations. After a few months of using the system, Liam said;
“The best result of purchasing MyExpenses is the savings in terms of correct mileage claimed and efficiency of the entire claim process – which clearly equates to a time saving and ultimately the ease of claiming VAT back for mileage expenditure. The key benefits are; ability to access the system online from any internet enabled computer or smart device, the mobile application is really easy and intuitive to use and of course efficient handling of all expense related claims. MyExpenses is a really simple, easy to use system and I would recommend this to anyone considering investing into MEO’s platform. “
