Working for your own comany & Per Diem


Registered Users (C)
I started a company in September and I am an employee of my company. The company is paying me a salary that is standard for the kind of job I do. My client location is pretty far and it causes me a lot of expenses. I believe I am eligible to take a per diem for the first 12 month in that client location.

When I told my accountant that I wanted to take the per diem, he is don’t like the idea. He is advising me that it could put my company in tax issues with IRS. Is that a fairly reasonable judgment?

I appreciate your comments. If anybody is taking per diem while working for their own company please drop a line.
