In the guide: Claiming business travel expenses we looked at what a business journey is and how you can legitimately claim for it. But how do you claim for subsistence expenses and what are the options available to contractors?

In this follow-on guide we look at:

  • claiming for subsistence expenses
  • when and how you can claim for actual expenditure
  • what scale rates are
  • how does the ‘scales rate’ system work
  • when the use of scale rates is not allowed
  • the records you’ll need to keep as a Limited Company contractor
  • what happens when you’re away on business overnight
  • whether you need to report incidental overnight claims
