Hi everyone. I have a client who a maths and science tutor and has many of her students going to her home to be tutored. She currently uses the flat rate for use of home as office rather than a proportion of the total household costs. However, she has recently had a new floor installed in her hallway as the old one had started to collapse and was a safety hazard. Is it acceptable to continue to use the flat rate but also to claim a proportion of the cost of the repair on top of that. Her students have to use the hallway to access the room in which she tutors.
