Any experts on work expenses here? This a first world problem, I appreciate that.
Every Monday I set off at 05:45, travel to London from Leeds, stop overnight and return the next day at 19:00.
The company I work for has just changed their work expenses policy, with what they say is in line with government allowances.
Previously I was permitted to £10 Breakfast, £7.50 for Lunch and £25 for Dinner. They have now changed this to £5, £5 and £15 and said I should be eating food which is nutritious, whilst outside London this is probably achievable; I'm not sure where in London I could eat nutritiously for the allowance.
I've had a look into it and seen this "Overnight subsistence rate – There is no rate set for overnight subsistence. Employers can agree a rate with HMRC for overnight subsistence using the bespoke rate process."
I was wondering if anyone knew more about this?
