Travel & Subsistence

Changes to travel & subsistence relief

As a Morgan Hunt contractor you are important to us and we want to ensure you are kept up to date with developments which may affect you.

You may be aware of the tax changes by HMRC relating to travel and subsistence relief, which came into effect on 6 April 2016.

If you are a temporary worker whose earnings are paid through the Morgan Hunt payroll, subject to PAYE income tax and National Insurance deductions, you are not affected.

If you are paid via an Umbrella Company subject to PAYE income tax and National Insurance deductions and are under the direction, supervision or control of the end client then you cannot claim tax relief on commuting costs or subsistence. Only work related (site-to-site) travel expenses are allowable.

If you have any questions please speak directly to your Umbrella Company or refer them to our candidate services team and we will respond to you as quickly as possible. 

Alternatively please visit the HMRC website for full details.
