Requests for regular usage allowance will no longer be accepted from 30 June 2013
Any staff currently receiving the payment will not receive it in their July salary and any miles claimed on or after the 1 July, will be paid at the new rates.
The travel claim form will be changed in line with the new terms and will be available to download from the mileage and travel claims page from 1 July.
More information will be sent out to those of you who claim regular user allowance over the coming days.
