Separate tables can be found below for motor mileage/KM rates. The subsistence amounts apply to both DEL and Dependant employees.

You can download the forms required from Employment - Forms Central. They must be signed off by both the employee and Line Manager. There is also a guidance document to help you fill in the form.

Please note that travel claims for DEL and Dependant employees are to be forwarded to the LEC HR department once they have been authorised by Line Management.

Remember that travel claims must be submitted within six months after the duty has been performed.
