Because an employee bought more than 6,000 pounds of fine chocolate with the company credit card, UK Data Protection is now investigating its ranks.
A Business Insider spokesman said, “We believe the deal violated our guidelines.” Accordingly, on the day just before Christmas, £ 6,248.40 (about 7,690 francs) was paid to a luxury chocolatier with a credit card from the authorities.
As reported by Insider, the highest single item, a batch of 147 items, costs EGP 170 for the chain. A buyer could purchase 36 of these boxes of chocolates for money.
The spending appeared in the 2020/21 tax year
This was the highest amount paid with a corporate credit card from the agency in the past 10 months. The amount was also noticeable because it is included in the individually listed expenses of over £ 500 for the 2020/21 tax year.
The spokesman affirmed that “the Data Protection Authority is committed to maintaining high standards in all aspects of our financial management and financial controls.” “If a breach of our financial policy is confirmed, we will take appropriate action and ensure that the payment is compensated.” (SDA)
