    It appears the tax-man is becoming more lenient about what you can claim as 'reasonable' expenses for working from home. This link here http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/working_lunch/7459639.stm explains it really well and it appears you can now claim a percentage of your mortgage interest and council tax - typically just after I stopped working from home but it could help some of you to reduce your tax bills

    It's been allowed, you're right, but they have made it clearer about how you can claim for different things. Also, there has always been a precedent that if you claim too much, then HMRC could argue that your home is actually a "business premises". If that's the case then you would have to pay CGT on the increase in value of the property if you sold up, plus business rates.

    The new guidance makes it clearer about what you need to do to reduce the chances of HMRC ruling that way.
    It's never too late to gyrate!

    Thanks for claryfying that Mr Swirl I knew about this but didn't think it was worth it beause of the business rates charges. This is great news, will have to investigate some more. Thanks for letting us know
