    ..should I be nervous, having been paid blanket expenses for 2 years (no choice but to select <10hrs a day away from home or >10hrs a day away from home, and the statuatory amount got filled in) but not saved any receipts as I was told I didn't need them..! (it was in writing on their webiste, but the wording has changed)

    Hector.?

    Most pissed off about this one actually as I could have saved loads of receipts if I had known, as I was spending the allowance anyway (and more) cos I was living away from home at the time for the work...

    Just call the the tax office..tell them about your mistake. They'll ask you to repay with a small amount of interest.

    If you ignore and they come asking, they can go back 6 years, and you'll end up paying the amount + penalties..which could be 100% and interest.

    You do the math!

    For ordinary commuting even on a sub-24 month contract you cannot claim your travel costs, whatever your umbrella tells you. Here is HMRC's guidance.

    www.hmrc.gov.uk/helpsheets/490.pdf

    Fixed term appointments

    3.18 A period of attendance at a place is not regarded as of limited duration or for a temporary purpose if it is all or almost all of the period for which the employee is likely to hold, or continue to hold, the employment.

    Example

    Everton is taken on for a fixed term employment of 18 months to work at a particular site. No relief is available for the cost of travel to and from the site during that period.

    You're confusing fixed-term contracts, and the kind of contracts most people on this board enter into. The term "fixed-term contract" effectively means temp work - http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Employme...ns/DG_10027735
