How to calculate per diem
Per diem in Russia is 100 rubles per day. This rule is dictated by the RF Government Decree of October 2, 2002 №729 "About the sizes of reimbursement connected with official journeys in territory of the Russian Federation to workers of organisations financed from the Federal budget". So it turns out that the per diem for those who travel on missions for our country, is 100 rubles multiplied by the number of days spent on business.
If the trip took place abroad, the per diem calculation is carried out differently. All the time, which sent the person is in the territory of Russia, are the standards adopted for Russia, that is 100 roubles per day. But from the date of crossing the Russian border allowance is paid at the rate established for travel in the country. For example, the rate of daily subsistence allowance for travel to America is 67 dollars, and in Canada — $ 59.
Per diem also includes the day of departure in business trip, and the day of return from a business trip. They are paid according to the tariff applied in our country. However, some companies may pay per diems in excess of.
