As part of its offer of employment, the University may include an offer of assistance with the costs of relocation that may arise if the employee has to move home in order to take up the appointment.  Any such offer is entirely discretionary and will be set out in the letter offering the appointment. 

The standard rates set out below are a guide:

Position/Grade Standard Relocation Expenses Allowance
Professorial Level/Grade IB £6000
Reader/Senior Lecturer/Grade H Up to £5000
Lecturer Level/Grade G Up to £3000
Grade F Up to £2000

Legitimate expenses that comply with the criteria issued by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and are supported by appropriate documentation, will be reimbursed, with no liability for income tax where the total amount being reimbursed is less than the HMRC tax-free limit (currently £8,000 at 2011).

Please note that claims can only be made against allowable expenditure actually incurred, and validated by receipts.  See the guidance from HMRC.  The University does not provide a loan facility.  Initial appointments must be for three years or more.
