As London Bridge station is officially reopened, make sure you’re not missing out on a tax claim for your travel expenses.

Even if you really love your job, commuting is unlikely to be your favourite part of the day. If the disruption caused by the London Bridge station improvement works has had an impact on your journeys, you’ll have been enjoying it even less. It’s been five long years of redevelopment and although most of the project has now been completed, some work remains to be finished.

So, the news that the station has been officially reopened this week will have come as a great relief to the 48 million passengers who pass through it every year. If you’re one of those rail travellers making their way to work, there could be even more reasons to be cheerful.

HMRC gives tax refunds against travel expenses for people who make their way to temporary workplaces under their own steam. So, if you travel between different sites via public transport – or even in your own vehicle – you could make a PAYE claim for your travel costs.

Maybe you’re a construction worker moving from site to site, or a member of the Armed Forces who is posted to various bases. From flight attendants shuttling between airports to security workers heading to a number of separate premises – if you’re funding your travel between temporary workplaces, you could be on track for a tax refund.
