I am a self employed gardener. I had to have 6 years off work on full befefits due to work related back neck and shoulder injuries. I have recently started working as a gardener again. I am much less fit than I used to be and could do with getting a personal trainer to help me with strengthening my core and shoulders to help me avoid getting the same injuries as I got before. The info I found on the Gov website said I can claim expenses for training courses that will help my business, so can I claim for a personal trainer?

Hi,

Personal trainer is not a course that would help your business exclusivley. As you will also benefit from this personally this would not be an allowable expense:
