Getting the most out of tax-free expenses

Paying the Taxman’s benchmark subsistence rates reduces your tax admin. Up to £25 per day can be paid (£5 for breakfast if the business journey starts before 6am; £5 if the employee spends more than five hours away and buys one meal; £10 if they’re out for more than ten hours and they buy two meals; £15 if they are out beyond 8pm, and buy an evening meal) irrespective of whether you or your employee spends this on food or not. Whatever you or they keep is tax-free and NI-free.  This means it can be a cheap way for you to increase your and their take-home pay.
