where to input business expenses when filing self assessment?

Postby wonderland78 » Mon Dec 06, 2021 2:34 pm

I've been out of the country for a few years and just about to file my 2020-2021.

I put in my gross income and then I get to the end of the self assessment and I realise there was no point at which I was asked to file for expenses, and I just get the tax bill.

Been in the US and I'm used to having to file all my expenses, purchases etc. is that not the case in the UK now? do I do all my own calculations privately and provide my own net income after those? Or did I miss a section?

Which supplementary page have you been completing :?:

There are lots of (business) expenses options on the self employment pages.

I'm not sure if I'm able to post images here but I took a screenshot of what I can see:

I'm not sure what you mean by supplementary pages and I can't see anything that pertains to self employment other than my gross income.

That page is asking for types of income. It doesn’t ask for gross income.

The way you have filled it in tells the system that you have 1 self employment business. As you go through the pages you will be presented with 1 set of questions about that business.
