    the thresholds as described by the University, Section 1 of the University application form.

    the support of both the Unit Director and (if funded by GL) the DFO.

3. Expert

  • Following the assessment, and subject to continued support from the BM, Unit Director and DFO, the BM submits all relevant documentation to the NDM HR sub-committee.
  • Subject to support of the HR sub-committee, the application can then be submitted to the NDM HOD for approval.


  • The Business manager submits the University application form to the Tax team, to enable a formal assessment to be made of the costs associated with the proposed arrangement.
  • The Business Manager should also seek to identify additional (non-tax related) measures required to support
    the arrangement, as listed in the University process (e.g.: pension, insurance, risk assessment).
