... as a primary VDU.

if he is developing a 3d solution then why not. Its a case of making a reasonable business case that stands up. I doubt the Dragon's pay for their suits on the show.

LOL

I told him to check with the accountant.

From what my mate said it was a dodgy effort, not writing the next great thing in 3D tv.

I think they probably do - claiming for clothes which are not 'uniforms' (i.e. logo branded etc) is a big no-no.

Newsreaders have to pay for their own clothes and are not allowed to claim the tax back.

in which case look forward as Hector hits him with the axle grease, if he is taking him to task he can't be chasing us.

My sentiments exactly. Anything that puts people in front of me in the "Look at me Hector, I'm not dodgy, honest" queue is a good thing. :smile

Actually your argument about being a 3D solution developer was perfectly valid. If you can make a genuine business case for it - you're fine.

Just that clothes are a poor example - goes back to 1983 (Mallalieu v Drummond) where a barrister was not allowed to claim for court gowns - I believe the case went all the way to the House of Lords.

clothes - I'm pretty sure many still do it. Just like putting the bubbly on the tab and carpeting the reception with Caviar & Foi gras. AFAIR most of the news presenters charge for grooming etc.

Depends whether you are a 'Real business' or not I suppose.
