SA100 Tax Relief on Work Visa Costs

Can my client - foreign doctor - claim tax relief on the cost of a work visa via his SA100?

Didn't find your answer?

Hello,

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

You asked a similar question back in December. You had some responses, you didn't engage with respondents. No thanks. Nothing.

Doctor was an employee in December.
Doctor is self-employed now. Different deduction rules.

Thanks for your input. It’s the kind of response I would expect from my teenager. Not my finest hour not responding to earlier post but perfectly legitimate reasons why I didn’t. Clearly our definitions of professionalism vary somewhat. Your user name speaks volumes

No legitimate reason for a lack of manners.

You could easily have gone on there and belatedly updated it, before posting your latest Q.

Professional? Looking at HMRC for employed staff whilst hinting at talking of self employed! Yes our definitions vary.

You have yet to contribute any answer to a thread where you are not OP
Insulting the regular contributors is your idea of being professional and polite?
Endex for me

Agree Tax dragon
Referring to SA unhelpful
That just means tax return
