HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) allows relief from income tax for travel and subsistence payments, so long as they are claimed as part of an individual’s employment. This is known as ‘Temporary Workplace’ or ‘Detached Duty’ Relief.
The rules surrounding this relief can be complex, with many factors having to be taken into account. To qualify, an individual must work away from their normal place of work for no longer than 24 months – therefore individuals moving permanently to the UK are generally not included, while those working in the UK for a fixed term of less than 24 months, particularly those who have been ‘seconded’ to a position in the UK, can claim this relief.
