I think this is the right place - but let me know if it's not and I'll move it.
I've been working as a freelancer/contractor in London for the last 12 months.
My client has a second office outside of London and, occasionally, their employees needs to visit the London office and stay overnight at a hotel (usually a Premier Inn or Travelodge - they get a £150 per night expense limit)
However, as it's such short notice, there are no hotels available nearby.
So, the employee has asked if they're able to stay at mine for the night, and I've asked my client (his boss) if they're able to pay me for putting one of their employees up.
Long story short, they've said I'm not able to bill them for bed and board because of "insurance problems" - is that correct?
Personally, I feel like they're just trying to keep their costs low at my expense... even though there's no real expense to me - he's a friend and I have a spare room. Maybe I'm just being greedy over-sensitive?
