Mileage claims

Discussion in 'Workplace dilemmas' started by Smoggy1981, Feb 27, 2012.

  1. I'm curious about what is the norm for mileage claims. I've done a couple of courses away from school since starting teaching, very few have been within 50 miles of school/home. I didn't really think much about mileage claim amounts. My previous job paid 45p a mile but did not ask for business insurance, MOT certificates etc prior to paying. Since joining this school and going on the first course, I was told I needed to suppliy all my car docs before getting any of the money back. So I dutifully paid extra for business insurance. I get 15p a mile and think this is ridiculously low. A technician at school has told me that you get more if you do short journeys - this seems backwards to me.
    My partner is nagging me to query this but I worried about coming across as money grabbing. Anyone able to help - is this normal payment?

    45p per mile is quite typical... your school seems to be being a bit tight. Get a train and public transport in future and give the receipts in instead in future.
