My client is a radio presenter and DJ. He has a problem with polyps in his nose and needs surgery to relieve the condition. As we all know he faces a very long wait to have this done on the NHS.
The problem is that the condition is seriously affecting his speech. As his voice is his meal ticket does anyone think the costs of a private operation would be tax deductable? He will go ahead if he thinks he will get tax relief - but will wait for NHS if not!
Should I write to HMRC for their 'approval' first?
