    Default Sorry for my ignorance HMRC and Hotel costs

    I was informed due to the rule changes last June that I would not directly be able to claim for Hotel costs using my Umbrella company. I still has to submit my hotel costs, it just wasnt calculated as an expense in my wages.

    I am sure everyone is aware of this

    Now I have got to the bit where I have to fill in the P87 form and at the end and after submitting £7280.00 in hotel expenses, the form is telling me that I have to claim via Self Assessment if the amount is greater than £2500.

    OK a couple of question,

    Why would I have to do it via self assessment when I was employed at the time through an Umbrella company? Seems to be counter productive as I went through an umbrella company to avoid self assessment.

    Is this straight forward or is it likely to open up a can of worms??

    Many thanks for any help

    Did you ask your employer for some help and guidance?

    Well they are an Umbrella company and I stopped contracting in December last year so I am not longer an employee.

    They did tell that, that is how HMRC want you to do it, but that is hardly an answer as to why??

    Cheers
