Expenses can be a nightmare for us self-employed folks! Particularly if we don’t know what we can and cannot claim. Not to mention the fact that the HMRC website can sometimes be a daunting and confusing hall of mirrors, which leaves you more confused than when you started. That’s why we decided to create a little, relatively simple guide for you.

Why does this matter?
