Trading allowance

do you have to be consistent ?

Didn't find your answer?

I have a client who, in addition to pensions, has a small part time business - turnover in the region of £10,000 pa.

In previous years, epenses have been a couple of thousand of pounds.

But, in 20/21, actual expenses are less than £500.

Q - can we claim £1000 trading allowance for this year, and then back to actual expenses next year if they are above £1000?  OR, do we have to be consistent with claiming either / or ?

Thanks

No you can change it to suit - expenses or trading allowance whichever is the most beneficial.

Effectively yet another bit of work on every small trader and landlord.
