  • Benchmark Scale Rate Payments

    Hello I run the subsistence with the approved bench mark scale rate payments. These rates have not been updated for years, and I have a concern that they are no longer appropriate for the cost of meals. I notice that in the below link, HMRC says these figures will be adjusted when there is as below: Uprating benchmark scale rates HMRC is committed to reviewing the rates annually and will consider revising them when there has been a change in the scale rate of plus or minus 10% based on the Consumer Price Index from when it was last revised. This comes from : https://www.gov.uk/hmrc-internal-manuals/employment-income-manual/eim05230 Is there any new rates tht anyone is aware of, when I have staff going away I do £5.00 B, £5.00L, £15.00D, depending on the time away from their workplace etc, and dependant on type of accomodation. What do other people use? Thanks
