    One more detail: I am not a permanent resident of the UK and I own a home overseas. They, in fact, require that for claiming accomodation expenses. Would this have an effect on the temporarity of my workplaces?

    I understand that they are referring to the "24-month rule" one interpretation of which is this: Clarity Finance Consulting – relaunching Soon

    At the point that you resign, or advise your Umbrella Payroll Company that you will be leaving at the end of your current assignment then your temporary work place will be deemed to be a permanent workplace, from the point of the decision or disclosure, then no further travel and subsistence claims cam be put through.

    What would constitute a FURTHER claim here?

    On 5th of May 2014 have prepared and signed claims for up to January 2014, then I resigned on 12th of May. But I only emailed them these claims on 13th of May.
    Have you rented out your home overseas whilst you are here? Did you come to the UK to look for work or to take up a specific contract?

    The 24 month rule concerns the length of time that you have spent at a particular location - did you work at one workplace for more than 2 years?

    Did you have an employment contract with them and did it have a notice period?

    You'd be surprised how many people on much higher rates than this work through a brolly - sometimes it's not all about the take home

    Evidently the employer doesn't think so.

    The only option seems to be to get the money paid as salary and then complete a tax return claiming the money back as expenses.

    Please don't ask about the visa sponsorship. Yes, an umbrella can do that, but only for certain types of works which require rather complicated arrangements, discussing which is beside the point. Immigrationboards.com • Immigrationboards.com is a good place for that.

    BTW, what constitutes the date of the claim, in HMRC's view? I have my claims prepared and signed before resignation, I just scanned and emailed them to the company later.

    Sometimes it's about getting a visa to work here as well

    It's nothing to do with HMRC - the policy is something that your employer has dictated.

    Not legally, no.

    Unless they are the employer and are genuinely finding work for the employee. If they are acting as a traditional / normal umbrella does, then no because they aren't the employer in the eyes of the Borders Agency.
