Tax-Free Lunch

Leave a comment

Are you self-employed? Then as it turns out there may be such a thing as a tax-free lunch.

free_lunch2Lots of self-employed people ask: Can I claim the cost of my food on-the-go against my taxable profits? As it turns out, the answer may well be yes!

As general rule if the costs of travel are allowable then modest subsistence (lunches, snacks etc) associated with such travel is an allowable expense. Itinerant traders (those that travel from one location to several other locations to perform their work) are the most likely to have such claims allowed. Sub-contractors working for a single client, at a single site may be denied subsistence expenses.

In either case get in-touch for advice specific to your circumstances.
