Business expenses

If you’re self-employed, you can claim tax back on a whole range of business expenses. Some of the most common are:

  • Travel expenses for business trips
  • Job search expenses
  • Fees paid to professional societies
  • Costs of specific tools and equipment

You will need to have a record of all the business expenses you incur to be able to claim them back.

Deductions

You may have paid too much tax if you contribute to a personal pension scheme or if you donate to a charitable organisation.

As with business expenses above, you must have a record of all the donations and payments made to reclaim overpaid tax.

Tax code

Check your tax code every year to ensure you are still on the correct code.

If you are on the wrong code, you might be paying too much tax on your income, making you eligible for a rebate.
