Hi, I'm a contract engineer being hired on a 9 month job through my incorporated company. I'll have to find a place near the job where I'm to spend the weeknights, but I'll be home for the weekends.

Can I expense the rent on this place? Utilities, internet, etc.?

The stuff I've read online about rent is a bit vague and talks about working from home, etc. This would be the same as if I were to stay at a hotel and expense that, correct?

Thanks

then rent a hotel.....hehehe.

As you are incorporated, I am sure that you have a good accountant to answer that for you. They might even have an idea as to how to rent, but have the expense be tax deductible.

You are looking at the wrong section. There is a section dealing with "away from home" expenses of employees.

In your case the Ltd is paying, so it is a bit different. I don't 'know' the answer but personally I would expense all but the food.
