Tax Relief for Hospitality

Postby Mikethebook » Wed Sep 05, 2018 7:02 pm

As part of her self-employment, my wife has people to stay in our home in the country for a day or two at a time either "on retreat" or to receive counselling. No charge is made for their stay. Can we legitimately deduct the cost of food for her clients as a business expense, please? Or does it come under the heading of "entertainment?"

That would depend on the self employment. Is she a counsellor? Why is it related to her S/E?

She is a missionary, which often involves counselling and leading individual retreats.

I'd claim it in full.
