Much has been written about expense dispensations, although mostly by parties with vested interests.
The issues stem from what is a legitimate expense and whether receipts are required or not?

If the expense has not been incurred it cannot be claimed – whether receipts are required or not.
Claims can only be made for the amount incurred, not the maximum non-receipted dispensation
