How much can i claim?

Postby masher » Thu Sep 26, 2013 5:57 pm

I run a cleaning business cleaning both houses and office -

I spend roughly £400 per month on cleaning supplies

I buy all our products at a local market where it is a bit cheaper for example ( Bleach is £1.50 in the shop and £1.00 on down the local market )


I am not sure but is there a limit on the amount of expenditure each month that i can claim for on cleaning products that i use to clean for my customers? ( i am sole trader )


I have a invoices that i keep


I was told that the hmrc only allow to deduct so much and not sure if this is correct? this is my first year of trading that is why i ask.

There is no limit on the amount you can claim for materials - so long as you don't use them privately.
