The rules for employees are in SP IT 2 07 - he is not allowed travel to his place of employment. If he is travelling between different offices of his employer that is allowed, as is travelling to do reports etc (outdoor broadcast?)

You said he is a freelance journalist (presumably therefore self-employed) so the location of his "office" is irrelevant; that would only be relevant if he was an "employee". A self-employed person can claim a business deduction for travel, including car hire and capital allowance on his business use car. An employee must claim "travel and subsistence" in accordance with Revenue guidelines. This does not include travel to the place of work.

Apols —- he is an employee. Company invoices the various entities that he works for. the fact that he works for various entities is irrelevant from a claim for travel Xs point of view ?????
