Reimbursed Expenses

  • Mileage and associated costs (tolls, parking, etc.)
  • Public transport (bus, train, taxi, etc.)
  • Accommodation
  • Meal expenses (evening meals, lunch, breakfast, etc.)

These types of expenses cannot be claimed in connection with travel or subsistence to your usual place of work, otherwise known as your permanent workplace.

PayStream contractors can record details of any allowable expenses on our portal or phone app.
