football podcast

Didn't find your answer?

A client has a football podcast he attends football matches - he says he needs to in order to produce the podcast

I say its under duality and HMRC will disallow - if he produces a segment/interviews a player/fan will this help his case?

could we then apportion ?

Thanks for you thoughts

Apportionment would be fatal to any claim. It is all or nothing.

Either the whole expense was incurred for business purposes or the whole expense was incurred for both business and private purposes.

makes sense thanks for that, struggling to see how he can claim.

Hard to argue that your only at a football match due to the podcast. but not out of the question.

He travels quite a lot so is associated costs such as hotels/flights

Lets say the broadcaster suffers from the affliction of being a West Ham Supporter. He attends an Arsenal match, to interview a player and produce a broadcast.

No self respecting Hammers fan would be seen willingly at an Arsenal game , so surely there would be no duality then.
