Claiming Business Expenses

All costs incurred on behalf of your business can be reclaimed through claiming expenses form you business

Some Examples:

- Travle, Mileage, 45p per mile

- Home office Cost, a monthly rental for using your own home

- Accomodation and meals when away from home

- Your mobile, should be in the company name

and how about Business lunches ... some information from FreeAgnet on what you can claim

Our advice, if you think its a business expense, use your company debit card to pay for it!


We advise you save as you go along, simple I know but hard.  We have found setting up a saving account helps. Pay into it regularly and reduce the dreaded VAT and Corporation tax bill stress.

FreeAgent has a Tax timeline to see what tax deadlines are coming up and to understand what you need to have put aside to pay your tax bills.


All the softwares have basic payroll solutions which are great for a company with two Directors and maybe a couple of employees. If you have more than two staff, pay more frequently than once a month or have staff paid on hours not salary, we use Payroll manager to support you.

What do tax code mean?
