Employee Travelling Allowance (TA) Advances
Employees may claim TA prior to the completion of travel, paid in the form of an advance. Where TA is claimed in advance, payment is generally made 2 days prior to the first date of the travel. Payments are made via electronic funds transfer to the employee’s nominated account. Where an employee is paid an advance of TA, the travel must be acquitted within 28 days of completion of the travel, otherwise future TA payments will not be paid until the travel is acquitted.
