As an Umbrella contractor working through PayStream you will fall into one of two categories; working under supervision, direction or control (SDC) of either the client or the agency or not. Depending on which category you fall into will determine how and what you will be able to claim tax relief on.
Even though you are working under SDC, there are still expenses that you may be able to claim directly from HMRC. There is a potential to claim tax relief for the following expense types, provided that they are incurred wholly, exclusively and necessarily in the performance of your employment duties:
If you have a regular workplace, but you are sent by the same client to work temporarily at another location (known as detached duty travel or inter-site travel) then HMRC may allow you to claim a tax deduction in respect of travel and subsistence expenses incurred whilst travelling to that temporary workplace.
An easy way to look at this is that you will be allowed tax relief in the same way as a permanent employee on the site would, if he or she was sent to a temporary workplace. Furthermore, all expenses must be incurred wholly, exclusively and necessarily in the performance of your employment duties. PayStream contractors can record details of any expenses they incur that are allowable in accordance with HMRC rules on our portal or phone app.
The type of expenses that you may be able to claim when travelling to a temporary worksite are:
Please note that you can no longer claim for travelling to a regular workplace.
In this video, Damien talks you through how this works and also gives some advice on what you should do if an Umbrella Company includes expenses on a take home pay illustration.
