I have a client who is a foreign doctor working here on a work visa. In completing his SA to allow him to claim tax relief on work related expenses he has asked if he can get relief on cost of work visa. I'm unsure - on one hand the clue is in the name "work" but on the other he will not ONLY be working here so it's difficult to see how it would pass the solely for business use test. HMRC Manual 490: Chapter 7 casts some light and he does pass those tests but that appears to refer to employees rather than the self employed.
Can anyone assist? Many thanks
