I have a client who currently has an office and a rented flat in London. He is looking to buy a house 140 miles away and live there for half of the week. He has asked if his company (he is a director) can take over the lease of the flat and if the cost of the flat would be an allowable expense. He has assured me that it's solely for staying over in London to be close to the office as the commute would not be feasible otherwise.
I have seen other posts which suggests this is (based on a cetain crieteria) acceptable on a temporary basis, a contract for example, but nothing around a permanent arrangement. If anyone has dealt with this situation before I would be interested to hear from you
