A pilot receives a set rate of additional pay depending on the location he flys to and is paid this automatically. It's referred to as "sector pay" otherwise kown as "flight duty allowance". The payment isn't being payrolled and is paid direct to his bank account so presumably its allowable.
However, I have read about "Sector pay/flight duty allowances" being partially taxable? The "partially" bit is making me a bit nervous about claiming the full expense. I have read that the rates are appoved by HMRC up to certain limits, but unsure how I find this out?
Any comments would be appreciated.
