Training costs - allowable?

Didn't find your answer?

I operate as a self employed bookkeeper and one of my clients is a small private primary school and trades as a company, not VAT registered. 

One of the teachers specialising is art (also a director and head of the school) wants to undertake a days training in a particular art/craft subject, with a view to passing those skills onto the pupils. Will the costs be allowable for tax purposes - as they wouldn’t undertake the course if it wasn’t for their position at the school?  Also reading up on ‘training costs’ it is a new skill area for him, original training in same general subject area, so not sure if that is relevant here.

Thanks in advance for any replies

Intrigued. He's an art teacher at a primary school but needs training for some radically different form of art - for primary school children??

If you are a bookkeeper, are you qualified and insured to give tax advice? It's tempting to try and be helpful but there's no shame in admitting it's not your area of expertise.

Training costs are never allowable. Not on this forum.
