Indeed, however it is just a little bit more hot air good news bull s**t IMO as depending on when allowence requests have been submitted over the last 7 odd years, and indeed depending on who you speak to either in Revenue or in Payroll the allowence was always tax free.

The original intakes were told in T/More that allowences were tax free.
