A Part 135 pilot must complete a Part 135 flight assignment within 14 hours of starting his duty, but under FAR 135.267(d), there is no such thing as a 14-hour Duty Assignment. Your duty assignment can be as long or as short as whatever. You can be on duty for 24 hours without violating FAR 135.267(d). You just can't plan a Part 135 Flight Assignment past 14 hours. You can plan to end a Part 135 flight assignment within 14-hours, and continue with non-Part 135 tasks thereafter for as long as needed or desired. You are still on duty, just not on required rest. Rest starts once you finish all work of the Certificate Holder and are prospectively assigned rest.

Nothing mandates a pilot be scheduled for rest after 14-hours. What is mandated is that he can't plan to operate an aircraft under Part 135 past 14-hours

Where in any regulation or interpretation does it say this +0/-0 regarding Part 135 flight planning? 1/13/2021 8:45:12 AM
