Working in a temporary workplace, such as the Edinburgh festivals, could qualify you to claim tax relief against travel expenses.

When the world-class events in Edinburgh get started this week, thousands of security staff and other seasonal workers will flock to the city, along with the festivalgoers.

The extravaganzas that are the Edinburgh International Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo all require an army of security workers in order to keep the city safe for the next month. This means there will be a lot of people travelling to Edinburgh as it becomes their temporary workplace for August.

We specialise in helping people to access the tax relief to which they’re entitled – which we think is particularly important when you’re working hard while everyone else is enjoying themselves!

Did you know that you can claim a tax refund for expenses incurred by travelling to temporary workplaces, either in your own vehicle or on public transport?

As a security worker, you could also qualify to claim tax relief on other work-related expenses. These include professional licences such as SIA or Public Space Surveillance.

Working in security can be very rewarding when an event runs smoothly, but it also often means working long, unsociable hours. So, don’t miss out on the tax refund you deserve after all your hard work.

At JNR Accounting, our friendly team can take care of the entire claim process for you, from start to finish. You can complete one of our easy-to-use claim packs, or we can even go through the necessary details on the phone – whatever works for you.

All for a low fee of just 15% of the claim amount. So, what are you waiting for? Join our VIP list and get your tax refund claim started today.
