Thank you for your reply. Those examples are very helpful. Can I check, please - if I were to use the Simplified Expenses, would I have to continue to use those from now on or could I change to using the Specific Deductions in future years (and vice versa)?
Please can you advise. Although I've been self-employed for many years, I've never claimed any 'working from home' expenses for the time I use my study as a home-office each day. I see I can either use simplified expenses or work out my expenses as a proportion of total home expenses which is fairly straightforward.
But what I can't work out, and need help with please, is: I am a licensed dog home-boarder. I have (approximately) 240 dog nights each year. Dogs access the whole downstairs of my house and sleep in two rooms (one of which is my home-office). Can I claim any 'home-related' expenses for the dogs? If so, which expenses would be relevant and how would I work out what proportion I would claim?
Many thanks for any help.
