Per Diem Rates (Countries A-C)

Please check that a per diem is available for the city you are visiting before you undertake your trip. The cities are determined by HMRC and are not at the discretion of the University.

Receipts are required for all hotel accommodation; you may attach your receipt to your per diem claim form. Please see guidance re hourly rates.

If you intend to hire a car, you should claim on the basis of receipts and not claim a per diem as well. The per diem rate includes travel and you cannot claim for both a per diem and car hire.

Per diems are based on meals, tea/coffee and travel; you must indicate on the form if these are provided for you. If a substantial proportion of your meals are provided then it is not appropriate to claim a per diem and you should claim on a receipts basis instead.

If a per diem is not specified, then you must retain receipts. In circumstances where receipts cannot be obtained you should keep a log of the type and amount of expenditure and submit this with your expense claim.
e.g. Log of expenses where receipts were unobtainable
