Thanks Keith. Are there any limitations/rules around this?
(And would it be 'temporary duties' if they come in on a 3 or 5 year visa?)
Just one more point. I assume that this would not work if we simply employed someone from India directly in the UK without them first being employed by our Indian subsidiary? That being the case, would they have to work for the Indian subsidiary for a 'qualifying period' before being transferred to get the benefits? Thanks.
OK, many thanks.
I just noticed that your first comment referred to 'subsistence' only. Did you deliberately not say travel? Or is any travel to/from home/workplace allowable?
So hang on then. I think you are now saying that the following from the original question are in fact NOT allowable: "...any weekday breakfast and lunch bills + any weekday travel charges." Please clarify.
So their 'place of work' is India. So for two years any travel and subsistence costs whilst in the UK are reclaimable because anywhere in the UK is regarded as a temporary workplace.
OK, I get it. Thanks.
HI Keith, I have just read an article (below) where it indicates that 'temporary workplace relief' will not be available if the new workplace was intended to be the same for more than 2 years. Since the employees are transferred on a 5 year visa to the UK, and the UK is regarded as the 'temporary workplace' would this not actually be regarded as 'permanent'?
I could rate again if you give me the option?
