Scale rate expenses payments for employee travelling outside the UK

13 November 2017

HMRC has confirmed that the scale rates published in October 2014 for accommodation and subsistence for employees travelling overseas will continue to apply for the year commencing October 2017.

Employers can reimburse subsistence to employees who travel abroad for business purposes by making a scale rate payment.

Guidance is available on GOV.UK on when you can use the worldwide subsistence rates.
