    Default Office Rental - expense...?

    Basically, because of the situation working from home is not an option. I have had vulnerable family members move in and they need to use my home office for isolation purposes (they caught on har har) So yeah there goes my working from home space. What I've managed to do though is temporarily hire out a cheap office space. I've put it through the books, any chance HMRC going to go ballistic?

    Wholly and necessary for the business so what's not to like? Perfectly legit.

    Whether such spaces will be allowed to remain open...

    Zero chance of them going ballistic. It is an expense that falls under the wholly, exclusively and necessarily test.

    Ensure that the lease is in the name of YourCo.
    I was an IPSE Consultative Council Member, until the BoD abolished it. I am not an IPSE Member, since they have no longer have any relevance to me, as an IT Contractor. Read my lips...I recommend QDOS for ALL your Insurance requirements (Contact me for a referral code).

    I'm just not even sure why you'd think this was going to be a problem. Most businesses rent commercial property You run a business don't you?
    See You Next Tuesday
