Hi, this chapter does explain a temporary workplace, however I am not sure it gives me the answer I need.
I have heard rumours that individuals who have the main office as an ordinary place of work, who then travel to a temporary site and claim the train fares as expenses will need to pay tax on a portion of the train fare that would have taken them to the office.
Can you please confirm if this is true? Or because it is a temporary place of work are the train fares completely tax free? Thank you
Most of our employees have the office as a main place of work and they receive a travel allowance. Both their salary and travel allowance are taxed through the PAYE system as normal. If one of these employees travels by train to one of our many construction sites 3 times a week and their train ticket is reimbursed to them in full how should this be treated for tax purposes? Thank you
