  • Employment : overnight accommodation Expenses

    Hi HMRC admin Please answer my Query. I work in a NHS hospital as a doctor. I live in north London. For 2 years I used to commute to an NHS hospital in North East England. When I am on call duty, once a month, I have to stay in the hospital accommodation (as my home was far away), for overnight, and attend to emergencies. As per my contract I have to be within 10miles to attend emergency. My question is for those days , when I am on call duty and stayed on site, can I claim overnight accommodation Expense, food expense, and travel expense between home and hospital. I am not claiming travel expense for every day travel, but only for those days, I have to be onsite, as part of my employment contract. Thanks.
