Customer Question

Hello
I’m responsible for sales in the Middle East and Asian pacific.
Since November last year I’ve done 3 trips to these regions what kind of compensation I’m entitled to as on almost all trips I’m away for 3 full weekends outside my working hours/days. In general i leave on the Friday and come back on the Sunday 16days later. Nothing is mentioned in my handbook or contract.
Kind regards
Willem

Thank you for your response. I will review the relevant information and will get back to you as soon as possible. Please do not respond to this message as it will just push your question to the back of the queue and you may experience unnecessary delays. Thank you.

Hello I have had to transfer your question to our tax section as this is more of a tax issue. You should be contacted by one of my colleagues in there shortly. No need to reply in the meantime, thanks

Hello I am Keith, one of the Tax Experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question. If your travel and subsistence expenses are all met by your employers there are no deductions you can make from your emoluments for tax purposes as a result of your overseas duties. Had you only been partly reimbursed then you could have made appropriate deductions for the balance as expenses in employment. Had you been self employed or not reimbursed at all then the whole lot would have been allowable as a business expense. I do hope that I have been able to shed some light on your position.
