My husband is a self employed subcontracted roofer. I am assuming his main place of work would be the 'yard' as he doesn't have a single place that he works at longer than any other. He is away from the home/work for around 10-12 hours a day (often visiting 2 or 3 sites around the southeast of England per day) and buys breakfast and lunch whilst out.
I have found varied information regarding claiming the tax back on this. From what I can tell, it's either
A) he can claim the 2 meal allowance of £10 a day.
B) he can claim everything he has receipts for (basically £2000 of mainly McDonalds/subway/fuel station sandwiches - not exactly nutritious but convenient I suppose)
C) he can claim £5 a day breakfast allowance as he leaves before 6am
Or D) He's self employed and needs to eat regardless of being at work or home so can claim nothing.
I hope someone can clear this up. Thankyou.
