Revised Civil Service Travel & Subsistence Rates
We would like to draw your attention to revised civil service travel and subsistence rates issued and in effect from Saturday 1st April 2017.
While we note many companies use the civil service rates as a guide for the maximum amount allowable to be paid to employees, these are only guidelines. They are not the ‘minimum’ amounts allowed for tax purposes but the maximum amounts. No director should feel under pressure to review their rates upwards unless the company is in the financial position to do so and the directors are comfortable the new rates can be sustained in the medium term.
