After working from home for 18 months, we are due to return to our office 2 days a week while continuing to work the other 3 days from home. Currently, our employees who have to travel to customers as part of their role are claiming mileage expenses from home to the customer. Once we're back in the office, do they claim a mix of from home and from office depending on what day they carry out visits or should they only be claiming from one permanent location? If the latter, how do we work out of that is their home or the office?

In particular the section for more than one permanent workplace if this is the case seelink below:

Thank you for referring me to the guidance. From reading, it looks like if we're working 3 days from home and 2 days from the office and our officers are going from both locations to see clients then we would have 2 permanent workplaces and so they could claim mileage from both, is my understanding correct? Thanks Kirsten

Hi,

If you have checked the guidance and your circumstances meet the conditons for claiming mileage, then you can claim.

Thank you.
