  • Claiming business startup costs

    Hi, my daughter set up a Dog Grooming business from home in 2018. Last tax year, 2021 - 2022, is the first year that her income is above the tax threshold, she has submitted tax returns for previous years but not had to pay any tax. Can she still claim for the initial start up cost incurred in 2018, or do they have to be claimed in the first year of trading, even if no tax was due? Thanks for any help Steve
