Hi, I am eligible for claiming home to base travel from my Employer. As I commute by train, I will be submitting my train tickets for the same. I was wondering if this expense would be taxable (PAYE), or be a part of the non-taxable pay? Many thanks in advance. I look forward to hearing from HMRC.

This would be seen as a reimbursement of expenses so they cancel one another out.
Normal commuting is not an allowable expense so please refer to EIM32080 - Travel expenses: travel for necessary attendance: definitions: temporary workplace: limited duration, the 24 month rule

Thank you

Hi, Thanks for getting back. 'Reimbursements cancel one another out' - Could this please be detailed? Thanks

Hi HSSn,
As you have already paid the money for the ticket and then being reimbursed for the same thing by your employer, there is no benefit received here as the final expense is nil.
Thank you.
