Hi Sam, thanks for your reply to my question below. That sounds quite complicated and I didn't really want the staff to incur any additional costs for the benefit as this is really more of a 'research trip', we'll be visiting a photography exhibition and also attending a design conference. Is there a much simpler way of doing this that may cost the company more money but will not involve the staff being taxed / P11d's etc?
The trip is planned during the week in working hours so we will officially be working.
With the burden of all this red tape it might be simpler for me to not bother with the trip after all?
Hi Sam, that's great thanks for getting back to me. We are planning on leaving Thursday evening getting there at 10pm, and returning midday Saturday so if we were to ensure Friday is filled with research and the design event and we just have the Friday evening as down time (and then only the one meal which we'll put down as entertaining - that would be acceptable.
Sound about right?
Really appreciate your help thanks
Sam very sorry for the late reply. You've been fantastic, thanks ever so much for clarifying.
