Treuliau

Gweld yr adroddiad treuliau ar gyfer Cyfarwyddwyr a IOPC.

Cymeradwyir treuliau gan reolwyr llinell a’u craffu gan y tîm cyllid cyn y cânt eu talu neu eu had-dalu. I gael ei ad-dalu, rhaid i’r hawliad gydymffurfio â’n polisïau.

Archebir pob tocyn trên, awyren a gwestai drwy Redfern Travel Management, drwy fframweithiau Gwasanaethau Masnachol y Goron er mwyn cael y gwerth gorau am arian.

Mae ein cap ar gyfraddau gwestai yn Llundain a thu allan i Lundain yn unol â’r hyn a gyhoeddir gan y Swyddfa Gartref.

Mae gan bob swyddfa gwmni tacsi i’w ddefnyddio os oes achos busnes dros wneud hynny ac os nad oes math arall o drafnidiaeth ar gael. Gellir ad-dalu staff:

  • pan fydd gofyniad penodol, megis anabledd

  • pan nad oes dewisiadau trafnidiaeth gyhoeddus ar gael

  • pan mae’n gost effeithiol gan eu bod yn teithio gyda’i gilydd

  • pan fydd ganddynt fagiau trymion neu eitemau gwerthfawr i’w symud

  • pan fyddai’r daith fel arall yn creu pryder o ran diogelwch

  • pan fyddai’n arbed amser neu’n fwy effeithlon a bod hynny o bwysigrwydd arwyddocaol

Rhaid i staff gael derbynneb er mwyn cael eu had-dalu.
