This is interesting!

I'm new to this forum. I just logged on for the first time and this topic is VERY close to my question:

I'm a British citizen, resident in Spain, where I pay my taxes on all my income.

I am about to launch a website that supplies marketing services to (specifically) UK High Street Opticians. The subscription is 99 uk pounds a month.

My tax affairs are in order here in Spain, but I got a question from a subscriber (in the UK) and I'm unsure of the answer:

Can a UK, self-employed Optician & Taxpayer claim this money as a business expense?

The product is a marketing system (both a physical and virtual product) that the client uses to increase business and train staff in productive marketing and advertising techniques.

Any advice would be extremely welcome!

Many thanks,

Norman. (Mallorca, Spain.)

I too know personally of several people who deal in large amounts of cash and don't declare it, one even claiming benefits at the same time. Phone calls to the hotline appear to have no effect. Meanwhile, the authorities are keen to pursue people who *do* declare their earnings but make errors in their returns - the easiest option I suppose.

I agree with you here. I am not even going to start on this one, I could go on a serious rant, but believe me, the bigger the company, the more money they have, the better the solicitors/accountants they can hire to fight the HMRC.

Don't let this take up your life, it ain't worth it.

Same here I have reported car trader in Wiltshire, as he's not registered and not paying tax. However nothing was done about it....

Please delete this thread as I can't see a single positive reason for keeping it open for potential necro'ing again.
Do you adore to transfer your artistic and inventive qualities to renovate a part type? Perhaps your friends who tour your sanctuary head remarks about want they could levy you to change their premises.

@Generix That would be against the ethos of TaxationWeb. None of the comments are harassing, defamatory, etc. If people want to vent of steam, let them. They'll do it anyway, if not here, then somewhere else. For anyone who does not want to participate, they can just move on and not follow this conversation any more.

I was more annoyed that I read the entire thread and only at the end noticed the original start date of the thread and then its various reincarnations. :x

I have reported someone.
They were also reported by others.

We supplied lots of details and documentation, photographs, scams, co-conspirators etc.
We will never know if our report went anywhere or what stage it is at.
We do know they are having a lot of contact with their accountant recently due to the VAT man.
That could be a complete coincidence.
Maybe they just have arrears - or, maybe HMRC have followed up the information and have taken action.
