Employee Flat Rate Expenses

These are expenses that are incurred in the performance of the duties of the employment and are directly related to the 'nature of the employee's employment'. 

A standard flat rate expenses allowance (deduction) is set for various classes of employee; for example, airline cabin crews are granted flat rate expenses of €64 per annum. 

The amount of the deduction is agreed between Revenue and representatives of groups or classes of employees (usually the employees are represented by trade union officials); the agreed deduction is then applied to all employees of the class or group in question.
