CHAPMAN:KPMG BOSS DENIES EXPENSES FIDDLE

GLASGOW A KPMG director accused of fiddling an extra £45,000 from his expenses said it was 'inconceivable' that the accounting firm had not noticed his claims were duplicates. Management consultant Brian Chapman, 55, was booted out of his £104,000 a year job in 2012 when he was accused of a five-year expenses fraud. He double-claimed or even triple-claimed for international flights, luxury hotels and mobile phone bills as he toured the world working for the company. But Chapman said he did not intend to over-claim on expenses and expected internal controls to spot any mistakes he had made.
