If an employer is paying for accomodation for employees as they are working at a temporary workplace for 6 months can the employer also pay the overnight subsistence rate of £25 per night as the employee is away from their usual home overnight?

Hi
As long as they are not paying for the same meal twice , ie accommodation fee is only for bed, then yes can pay for food for the 3 meals, as the employee is paying for the 3 meals.
If the accommodation is bed and meals then they can't pay for the meals again, as there would be no expense for the employee as the meals are already paid for. 
Thankyou.
Regards.
