I act for a vet who has left his emploment with a veterinary practice and started doing freelance veterinary work. So far he has done 6 weeks at a practice in Scotland, 4 weeks in London and 2 weeks in the South West, staying in bed and breakfast accommodation as he lives in the Midlands.
When he asked at the outset whether he could claim the cost of his accommodation, I said no but I didn't realise at the time that each engagement would be so short. I am now thinking that the accommodation costs are allowable as the work is "itinerant". Do others think I was too hasty in denying relief?
Thanks in advance.
