Running your own business can be hard enough without having to think about expenses, especially what counts as expenses.

So thank you to Polly Lee, owner and chartered accountant at LeeP Financial who has put pen to paper to create a simple fact sheet that may save you time and money!

Polly has used her experience & knowledge to pull together some examples of what can and can't be claimed as expenses. So if you want to know if you can claim for workwear or suits, computer consumables or client entertaining, take a look below.
