  • Professional Development and allowable expenses

    I am a freelance music teacher and performer. Most of my income comes through teaching, training and consultancy but I also earn something from performing and have lessons to maintain and develop my skills. Can I declare the cost of my own lessons and associated travel as an allowable expenses? What about the cost of music I have to buy for my lessons and the cost of exam fees for higher level qualifications that I would like to gain for professional development?
