UT employees may be eligible for allowances to help pay for moving costs, temporary accommodation and daily travel to and from work. You must, however, meet certain conditions. For UT employees starting their employment on or after 1 September 2017, these conditions are set out in the Regulations for relocation, temporary accommodation, and commuting allowances 2017.

If you are not eligible for a travel allowance, you might be able to use the Optional model for employment conditions to exchange hours of leave or gross salary for a tax-free kilometre allowance. You can also use the Optional Model to have the costs of purchasing or maintaining a bicycle reimbursed – again by trading in hours of leave or gross salary. This exchange will give you a tax advantage. Employees using the 30% scheme are not entitled to uses this option.
