• Living-away-from-home allowances

    LAFHA fringe benefits are allowances paid to employees to compensate them for the additional expenses and any disadvantage suffered because they are required to live away from home in order to perform employment duties.

    LAFHAs and travel allowances are generally recorded in the payroll system because they are allowances rather than expense reimbursements.
