Expenditure refunds and fixed rates for personal expenses

In accordance with § 9 (1) of the BRKG, business travellers receive an appropriate expenditure refund for personal expenses instead of a daily allowance, overnight allowance and expenditure reimbursement, when experience has shown that the expenditure for board or accommodation is generally lower than usual. An expenditure refund is set particularly in cases in which it is obvious that there will be lower expenses for board and accommodation (such as regular business trips to the same place or paying for canteen meals).

In accordance with § 9 (2) of the BRKG, it is possible to grant a fixed rate for regular or similar business trips, instead of reimbursing travel expenses or individual parts of these. This is calculated according to the average of the travel expense reimbursements that occurred within a certain time period.
