What else can I claim if I stay away from home for the night?

Employees staying away from home overnight on business often incur additional expenses of a personal nature. Examples include newspapers, laundry and home phone calls. Incidental overnight expenses can be claimed as an allowance as below: 

Per night £4.43

4 nights £17.72

5 nights (incl. preceding Sunday) £22.15 

*HMRC Tax free limits up to £5 per night overnight incidental. Therefore there is no taxable benefit to employee.
