Relocation allowances

Rachel Sharp Editor's message: An employer may offer assistance with the costs of relocation when it recruits an employee who will need to move to take up the appointment, or as a result of business reorganisation - for example, if it wants some or all staff to move to a different place of work. Some relocation expenses qualify for tax relief up to specified limits.

For more information on relocation, see Relocation. Employers dealing with international assignments should refer to International assignments/expatriation.
