A part-time employee may be required to make overseas trips up to three times a year which will extend beyond their normal working hours. In order to make these trips they will need to put in place temporary childcare arrangements - estimated to cost around £65 a day - on the days they do not normally work.
My logical brain concludes that this is an expense incurred wholly and exclusively so that the work can happen - and I think I would be happy to pay this in expenses, however I know that normal logic doesn't always apply with HMRC. Reading the guidance on childcare costs, it seems to not apply to this type of situation and I had started to get lost with knowing what to search for to find an answer on the HMRC website.
Am I being sensible or have I missed something?
