Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I get schooling allowance for my kids from my company. Let say 1000. But actual fee is only 100 because the school is not of good standard. For that reason i have to send my kid for special private tuition which cost me 300 which is not entertained by company. transportation fee is covered but i do not claim because my house is near to school my kid goes by walk. The question is can I submit fake transportaion bill, once claimed i want to cover private tuition fee. Note all these expenses are within the range the company offers me that is 1000.
