Sorry, but I still don't seem to have received a response to this?

I have a new client with property income. She acquired the house via a will in 2008 and has spent a considerable amount of money refurbishing and decorating. I contacted HMRC concerning expenditure before the property was occupied and was informed that as long as it was purely decorative costs, they could be claimed. All capital expenditure has been ignored, however, there is still a considerable claim there. Before I submit the Self Assessment, I contacted them again to confirm as there is a lot of conflicting advice on HMRC Website regarding expendture before occupation. I spoke to another representative that on no account can ANY expenditure be claimed before occupation. I wonder if you could clarify this for me as both myself and my client are frustrated at HMRC website and the two conflicting responses! Thank you in advance for your help. Sian

Unble to log in for SA
I'm having a nightmare this morning! I'm unable to log into the Self Assessment area to submit tax returns. All other services are accessible but not the SA? Have called HMRC and they are looking into it, in the meantime, I'm stress eating chocolate cheesecake waiting for the service to resume. Anyone else had this?????

Isn't the Accruals Concept a fundamental part of accounting? Or am I missing something here? I completely don't agree with it and see troubles ahead for the sole traders who take it upon themselves to DIY and ditch their accountants. Maybe it's a long term plan by HMRC to catch them unawares!
