    Sorry don't know, I went for the manual option. But its incredibly straight forward to adjust.

    If you are going to stand make sure you get a decent cushion mat thing to stand on.

    Only minor irritation is i like to have all my cables neatly tied but you cant with an adjustable desk, you need to have a bit of give. So just a little messy.

    I want to get a new office desk and chair, but how do you get around it being a business expenses when more than likely it will be in your home and just dual purpose?
    Contracting is like plumbing. You're your own boss until you walk into someone's house and they tell you to take your shoes off.

    The fact it's a "home" office kinda gives it away as being dual purpose!

    I've had an Ikea one for a few years now - good sized desk, works fine, no problems with it.

    Claiming Home Office Expenses | Nixon Williams Accountancy

    Office furniture
    When purchasing office furniture such as a computer desk, filing cabinet or chair, you should consider whether there will be any personal use of the item as this could have an impact on whether it is considered an allowable expense. If your private use of the item is insignificant then you will need to be able to demonstrate this to the satisfaction of HMRC.

    However, if the item cost is deemed reasonable then it is unlikely that inclusion as a business expense would be questioned. This amount usually falls under around £300.

    If you are called upon to justify the usage of your furniture by HMRC, you will need to consider how much time you spend using the item for business purposes. For example, if you have a piece of office furniture which you use only intermittently for work purposes, it would be difficult to prove that your personal use is less significant than your work use.
    But this goes counter to HMRC's own advice where they say you need to work out the ratio of time needs to be calculated to split between personal and business use and the amount claimed to the percentage.

    Gut feeling is spend £250 HMRC won't bother, spend £x000 as suggested elsewhere and it starts to look dodgy!

    OK, so do you have an "office" in your house - a room that you use for work, and not much else?
    If so, to me that's fine.

    If the place where you work at home is also where you have an xBox, a 65" TV and you spend most of your life playing World of Warcraft, then no, it's not OK.

    This is what I have: Herman Miller New Aeron Office Chair, Graphite/Polished Aluminium at John Lewis & Partners
    And since replacing a cheap chair with it, I'd not had as much back and shoulder pain, and my RSI has subsided
