What are the rules for claiming tax relief on the costs of travel, subsistence and accommodation?

There are different rules for those who are employed and self-employed.

There are also different mechanisms for making a claim for these kind of expenses, depending on whether you are self employed or not.

If you are self-employed (sole traders and partnerships)

The way in which you claim tax relief on certain expenses depends on whether you are:

1. Cash or accruals accounting.

2. Claiming flat rate expenses or accrual expenses.

Ideally, you need to know what expenses you can claim under each method and then compare and contrast the options available in order to what is best for you.
