Editorial for Newsletter #306Sunday, September 14th, 2008
As soon as we had “gone to press” with last week’s newsletter, we received a response from the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR) to our three questions. One was resolved, as is explained in the update item in this newsletter, but the other two issues are still up in the air. However, to give credit where it’s due, BERR’s new booklet on redundancy is excellent and would be a useful addition to any payroll or HR department’s library.
The second part of our FAQ on the subject of travel expenses explores four tax exemptions. You may have considered these before but do review the late-night working exemption. HMRC’s strict interpretation of the exemption makes it almost impossible to use!
