Hi It states in someone's contract that their place of work is one of the company's offices, but their role is to travel to customer sites when required (these vary on a daily basis). Should travel expenses be claimed from home to the customer's site for the full amount of miles or should the amount of "normal" commute i.e., the mileage it would take them to get to their place of work be deducted from this amount. Example Home to company office = 15 miles Home to customer office = 20 miles Would claim be 20 miles or 5 miles? Thanks

Hi,

You can claim where you are travelling from home directly to the customer's sit and where you travel to a customer's site after travelling to the office, you can claim for the mileage from the office to your customer. You cannot claim from home to office.  

Have a look at the guidance at EIM31200 onwards for more information.  

EIM31200 - Employees using own vehicles for work: mileage allowance payments, AMAPs, MAR, passenger payments

Thank you.
