UK workers lose £2.1 billion every year by not claiming expenses, start-up Pleo wants to change that

More than one-third of workers say they never claim business expenses back, and over half say they will not claim unless they are owed more than £5. All of this is to the detriment of UK workers who are losing £2.1 billion every year through unpaid business expenses. The London and Copenhagen-based start-up named Pleo wants to change this.
