Hello! I work as a sole trader and I work from home. I use my private home address for HMRC, invoices, and marketing materials. I'm considering buying a virtual office address (to buy a possibility to use an office address only, not renting any office itself) so I can use their address on my invoices and marketing materials, instead of my private home address (this is to maintain my privacy). If I decide to do so, would it be an allowable expense?  And the second part of the question is: I've been claiming expenses for using part of my home as an office (only the part that’s used for business). May I keep doing that even when I pay for a virtual office address (for an address only, not for any office space itself)?

If both still meet the rules for wholly and exclusivley being business use then you will be able to claim for both.

Thank you.
