Petition Stop the budget proposed elimination of expense claims for small business
For those who travel significant distances to maintain our livelihood, commute/accommodation costs incur a significant portion of our income. What is left, is subjected to a dividend tax. This is insulting and unfair to the small business that has driven this economy during it's difficult times.
As mentioned by IPSE, Oil and Gas staff are permitted to cover their travel costs and there are many contractors travelling the UK in their constantly changing temporary roles. Take that away and there will be an adverse impact on the economy in general.
