I currently own a property in the UK, which is where I currently live and plan on living most of the time. However, I have recently accepted a job in France and will need to rent accommodation for this purpose.
Q: can I expense the cost of the accommodation in France, and also the cost of my travel back and forth from France?
On the one hand, these are business expenses in the sense that I would not incur them if I were not doing this job. So one might think they can be expensed. On the other hand, people cannot generally expense rental costs even if they have moved to an area for the purposes of work. Perhaps the fact that my primary residence would remain in the UK could make the difference?
