Temporary postings of under 2 years can lead to opportunities for tax mitigation, via what is known as ‘detached duty’, or sometimes ‘temporary workplace’, relief from income tax on travel and subsistence costs when they are a direct result of their work.
The valuable claims against income tax include:
The lengthy list of rules includes the fact that these only apply to the worker, not his or her family. And as you would expect, the person must keep their expense receipts and documents in case of an HMRC inspection.
As well as detached duty, there are other possible claims that we can help you to make successfully. One example is where an employee has a contract here for as long as 3 years but will be making business trips abroad. This individual can potentially claim back income tax on the time spent on these overseas visits.
