Who can qualify for a UK Secondment tax rebate?
Work secondments can apply to a wide range of professions. However, we generally find that researchers, scientists and IT professionals are the most prone to come under the scope of work secondments.
Often overseas employers may request from their employees that they relocate temporarily to the UK subsidiary of their company for a period of 6 to 24 months.
If you come on a workplace secondment in the UK, you would normally be paid in GBP whilst in the UK and pay income tax under PAYE (Pay As You Earn scheme), like any other UK employee. As a result, you could be owed hundreds of pounds once your secondment comes to an end.
What are the requirements you must meet?
If you come into the UK on a Tier 2 (ICT) visa from a multinational corporation, you may be entitled to claim tax back for the year in which you leave.
You may also be able to claim for some of the living expenses whilst in the UK.

- The expense must actually be incurred and paid by the employee.
- The employee must be obliged to incur and pay it as holder of the employment.
- The amount must be wholly, exclusively and necessarily incurred in the performance of the duties of the employment.
Only if all of the elements, of these tests are met is a tax deduction granted.
A workplace which may appear to be a temporary workplace will not be a temporary workplace, where the employee attends it in the course of a period of continuous work that lasts, or is likely to last, more than 24 months. This is found at ITEPA 2003 s 339 (5).
