I'm just looking on some advice and thoughts from others who deal with similar sort of clients. Any advice would be gratefully received!
We have a few small limited companies which are owner managed. The business is operated from the director's personal home. The dircetor states that approx 25% of the heat and light is for business use (heating the office room during the week) and 75% of the phone is for business (majority of calls are for business but there is no itemised billing). Both the heat & light and the phone bill are in the director's personal name.
I realise that if the company pays for the bill then there would be a BIK as the phone remains the privtae expense of the director. However can the director charge the company for use of home as office at a rate above the scale payments based on the above apportionment?
What would you advise the client so that P11D isn't a problem but the company still pays for some of the costs?
