I've received a business expense claim from an employee which includes an amount for laundry costs. For context this is someone who has been working away from home for several weeks and had to wash their clothing while staying at a hotel. As far as I understand it as none of our employees have a uniform or specialist protective clothing in order to perform their role this claim wouldn't fit as being incurred wholly and exclusively in the performance of the duties of employment rule as this particular clothing would have a business purpose and a non-business purpose. Is this correct? Thanks

Hi
It is your decision whether to pay these expenses or not, if you do, this may be covered by Incidental Overnight Exepenses, please see the following link for more information:
Expenses and benefits: incidental overnight expenses
If you do not pay any expense, the employee can contact Personal Tax to enquire about any tax relief that may be due.
Thankyou.
Regards.
