What is the best way to explain to a client that business entertainment is not tax deductible? & How to correct this if they have not been doing so?
I can see/ understand this from HMRC website/ accountingweb answers etc but it really isn't all that clear especially to someone who has not studied accounting especially for things like client meetings at Starbucks for a self employed designer who works from home (for example)
If a client is a web designer and works from home/ membership club/ coffee shops and so has a lot of small amounts going through for coffees etc when meeting clients for meetings.
If he has been deducting this for tax. £4000 odd claimed over the years. Am I right in thinking this requires a letter/ separate disclosure to HMRC? we couldn't simply correct on his current self-assessment form?
Thanks in advance,
