Business expenses for the self-employed, Capital allowances and vehicles and Negligible value claims and share loss relief - Talking Points meetings

Welcome to my weekly blog about this week’s Talking Points meetings, which cover three different subjects.

Business expenses for the self-employed

This meeting will look at business expenses, concentrating on two common areas: motoring expenses and use of the home as a workplace.

We will also look at simplified expenses and how using them can save time. And take a quick look at keeping records and the reasons it is important these are maintained.

Tuesday 12 December – midday to 1pm           Register now

Capital allowances and vehicles

Did you know you could claim capital allowances on items that you keep to use in your business? In most cases, you can deduct the full cost of these items from your profits before tax using the, Annual investment allowance.

Due to the popularity of this subject, we are running two meetings, both of which cover:

  • how to claim tax relief for vehicles including the special rules for cars
  • how to claim for other items that you keep to use in your business.
