What You Can Claim as Business Expenses

HMRC’s stance on this is that you can claim any expense back against profits so long as it is “wholly and exclusively for business purposes”.  This sounds obvious and straight forward enough until you start to trade and you soon realise that there are quite a number of grey areas, especially for self-employed people.  The main areas requiring some clarification are as follows:

Motor Expenses

Mobile Phones

Land Line Phones




Use of Home

Incidental Overnight Expenses
