As a contractor you can offset certain work related expenses if you expect to be on site for less than 24 months. The main ones are travel, accommodation, and subsistence. The amount of expense that you have incurred in carrying out your duties will be paid free of PAYE & NI. This means that your take home pay is increased because you are paying less Tax and NI.
It is important to remember that unlike when you are employed we do not reimburse you for those expenses, we simply process them according to the HMRC guidelines for temporary places of work.
For a more detailed breakdown of what you can claim, see our Expenses Policy or talk to your Personal Account Manager.
