Can I offset the cost of my home office against profits?



Verified Member
I am currently employed by my own business and will be looking at a Home Office in the not too distant future. Do I offset the cost of the Home Office against my personal tax or do I offset it against the profits made by my company?

Put everything through the business if it is to do with your employment. Dont be tempted to pay for it yourself and claim it back - this will impact your cashflow. If you business is struggling with cash then give you business a loan - transferred into the business account - so everything can still be bought through the company. Once you start paying for stuff and claiming it back you are at the beck and call of HMRC regs which can be different for companies and ligitimate expenses.
