Expenses of travel - Non-executive directors attending board meetings
Revenue has updated Part 05-02-19 of the Income Tax, Capital Gains Tax and Corporation Tax manual on the Revenue website to:
- set out the position in relation to the tax treatment of expenses of travel and subsistence incurred by non-executive directors in attending board meetings,
- confirm that, generally speaking, no deduction is due to a non-executive director in respect of such expenses, and
- confirm that where such expenses are met by a company on a director's behalf or are reimbursed to him, PAYE/USC must be deducted.
