Hello, I let out my flat as an Airbnb, and try to have the essentials stocked up for the quests. They can use the washing machine, use the shower, cook in the kitchen, etc. So a lot of these common for a household products need constant restocking as the guests exhaust them. For example, laundry detergent, shampoo, soap, coffee, oil, sugar, salt, bathroom/kitchen cleaning products. Can those be added as an expense for running an Airbnb? Thank you.

Hi Kliment Paskalev,

 In accordance with PIM2010 - the wholly and exclusively test. Any expenditure incurred solely for the purposes of a business or trade is allowable as an expense against your rental business.
Please see attached guidance at PIM2010 - Deductions: general rules: applying the wholly & exclusively rule

Thank you.

Thank you! These expenses do eat a lot of the letting income so this will help a lot!
