Hello! I work as a sole trader and I work from home. I rent a flat long-term (Private renting: Private residential tenancy) and I'll be moving flats. Between these two flats (both with PRT), I'll need to stay in a short-term let or AirBnb to cover the gap I have between these two tenancies. Can I keep claiming expenses for using part of my home as an office (only the part that’s used for business) also for these months I'll be renting a short-term flat (via short-term letting agency) or an AirBnb flat? Or is it only allowed when I rent long-term (PRT)? I plan to keep working during all this time as usual.

Hi

You can still claim the working from home as before regardless of how long the let is for, as long as you are paying for the cost yourself.

Thankyou.

Regards.
