Some insight please if you could spare a moment..
Self-employed actor chooses not to stay in hotels and have meals there (deductible for sure) on tour but instead stays in apartments (also deductible) and does a 'typical weekly shop' at Tesco to feed himself / make sandwiches for the week. Can he claim these 'normal' food bills? On one hand he is working away from home on business and it is not possible for him to eat at home...on the other hand he isn't incurring any additional costs above his normal subsistence. His previous accountant allowed all the shopping bills but I am thinking there is no additional subsistence costs so should not be allowed. Any comments much appreciated. I have asked 3 CA friends and they all have different opinions!
