What is Per Diem anyway?

Per Diem means Per Day. Also, referred as daily allowance.

It is a particular measure of money an organisation provides for an individual. To be more clear, it is frequently a representative of the organisation.

It covers everyday costs when travelling for work. A per diem can incorporate part, or the majority of the costs acquired. And most companies pay the government rate, which is based on the cost of living in the location being visited.

In aviation, it is usually available to a pilot, flight attendant, crew member or office staff who are travelling for business. Specifically, it is the reimbursement for his or her meals and incidental expenses. And, every airline pays differently per diem rates.

One method is employees request the actual cost of meals, lodging, and incidental travel costs may be deducted. That is, subject to certain limitations, providing the invoices and receipts.

On the other hand, there is the allowance method. In short, an employee is only required to prove where they were, and that they were travelling as a requirement of their work. Generally, in the aviation industry, most employees and independent contractors use the allowance method.
