  • Home worker travel expenses

    I am looking to find out what the definition of a permenant place of work is, if it can be my home address and how it impacts my ability to claim travel expenses. In my contract of employment I am classed as a "remote worker" with a location of work as my "home address". Rarely, maybe four times a year, I am invited to travel to one or other site for a meeting or team building activity. All of my duties are performed remotely via phone, or internet. For those rare trips, is it possible to claim expenses against my employer? The HMRC documentation seems to indicate a permenent place of work is unlikely to be a home address, but I do not visit any sites "regularly" (there is no fixed pattern to site visits). I would take that to mean the trips are to a temporary workplace?
