NEC ECC: People 1.13 - Travel

We pay gangs travel time. Can you advise if home to place of work would be disallowable or can it be included in payments related to travel for people?

Firstly it must be a travel cost that is paid for by the Contractor and secondly it must also be incurred in order to Provide the Works.

I would suggest that it would be a cost if it does not form part of ‘ordinary commuting’ as defined by HMRC rules, that is the location is classed as a ‘temporary place of work’.

The resource must also be required to Provide the Works, either as part of the project team or labour force, rather than making use of available Site accommodation.
