Hi, what if an individual travels for work and total duration of travel is 9 days, of which day 1 is arrival, day 2 is attending work conferences, day 3 is travel to another country, day 4 & 5 is attending work conferences day 6, 7 & 8 is private and day 9 is travel back home. Can you claim expenses relating to accomodation, meals and taxis and a percentage of the airfares as travel expenses for the work related portion? Thanks.
