Make adjustments to the private consumption tax using the tax calculation using the self-assessment tax return. For partners and members of LLPs, such claims should be made in the partnership tax return / calculation against their share of the profits. Such claims should not be made on your own self-assessment tax return. HMRC would normally expect the company to confirm that these expenses are entirely and solely in the nature of the trade.
Any claims must be substantiated and records / receipts retained in the event of HMRC inquiries. The difference for directors is that the effort must be complete, exclusive and necessary (WEN test) as part of their duties as employees.
If you have a separate work phone, you can claim 100% of these costs. This also applies to broadband costs.

3) How many rooms do you use for business multiplied by the number of rooms in the whole house (without bathroom) (C&D). Last weekly entitlement = (A / 52) x% x (C / D)
Other costs such as rent, mortgage payments, unmetered water and insurance do not fully, exclusively and necessarily meet the criteria for compliance with the mandatory rules and cannot be invoked. Because these amounts would have to be paid anyway.
In certain circumstances, directors may be able to claim rental charges. However, this is rare and often difficult to prove.
The relief is usually taken through capital allowances as they would be considered fixed assets.
Direct reimbursements to employees are rare. If the person has to pay for office equipment and the company reimburses it, unless that is part of contractual obligations, the asset is purchased by the person in person. The company does not have access to the asset after the person leaves.
If you don’t get a refund, you’ll need to provide evidence of the WEN test before submitting an application to HMRC. For example, if a person had a computer desk before they were hired and has just replaced it, they will not be able to make such a claim.)
