If you have any queries regarding tax you will need to speak directly to your employer and/or HMRC as none of the team at Health Education England, London and Kent, Surrey and Sussex are qualified to provide advice on tax or national insurance contributions.

According to HM Revenue & Customs “if your employer helps you to move home because of your job, any payments you receive, or any goods or services provided for you, are treated as part of your earnings for tax and national insurance contribution [NICs] purposes. However, the first £8,000 of any help you get from your employer is exempt from tax and NICs as long as certain conditions are met”. 

Claims for excess travel and continuing commitments may be liable to tax and national insurance.
