Key points

  • A subsistence allowance is the money paid to employees for expenses such as the cost of meals and accommodation incurred in the course of carrying out their work.
  • Employers often set a limit on the level of reimbursements available under their subsistence allowance scheme.
  • Employers should have a procedure in place for how employees should claim back subsistence costs.
