Have just put in a long night with loads of strong black coffee and cigarettes trying to work through my Tax Return. The biggest problem being the period I spent mobilised and the minefield of provisions related to reimbursement of expenses from oneâs employer. Anyone got any advice on the following:- 1. Living Accommodation â supposed to declare the cash equivalent of any accommodation â whatâs the story when you are out in some sh*t hole on Ops ?? IR claim my employer ( the Army) should have given me a figure for this â B*lox 2. Mileage allowance â do we have to declare the re-imbursement for mileage to and from our TA centre? 3. Private medical insurance â have to declare the âcash equivalent âof medical services provided. What do the Regular Army declare? IR claim my employer ( the Army) should have given me a figure for this â B*lox 4. Other benefits â what are we supposed to do- make a wild guess how many meals we consumed whilst mobilised? What about TA service â cost of meals on the weekend? Cost of ORPs? 5. Expense payments received â when mobilised the Army didnât have any accommodation for my lot, so we were sent out to motels before we went â paid for by us and re-imbursed. Am I supposed to go through all my credit card statements and add that up? 6. Non residence provisions â can we claim for this if we were abroad on Ops? I recall a story about anOfficer who was knocked back for a Brit Passport cos he was out of the country - can't have it both ways surely. Home Office with one set of rules and IR with another ?? 7. Professional Fees and expenses â can I claim for compulsory donations to regimental funds? What about Mess functions that are a âthree line whipâ ? Would appreciate any steer on this as frankly it has been a nightmare. Any AGC out there that can give some advice? Yet another reason to leave the TA , quite frankly with the travel, meals etc, it just makes life too complex.
