What is the difference between refundable business expenses
and allowable business expenses?

Refundable business expenses are expenses that are fully reimbursed to you by your recruitment agency or company.

An allowable business expense is an expense which has been paid out by you; however these costs will not be refunded to you. Where it is viewed that such a business expense is a necessarily requirement for your contract, tax relief may be granted on the cost of the business expense.

All allowable business expenses must clearly demonstrate to be a valid requirement of your contract in accordance with:

1. IT 54 Revenue Guidelines

2. IT 51 Revenue Guidelines

3. Tax Briefing 03 Revenue

4. Tax Briefing 04 Revenue
