The first question came from AccountingWEB member penelope pitstop, who had a question about capital allowances:
"Individual landlord bought desktop computer and monitor SPECIFICALLY for managing his rental business matters (three residential properties). Business use of these is approaching 100% and the equipment is used from home. He wants to claim for the cost of these against his rental income... Does this then lead to the perverse situation of, say, a landlord who does all of his rental work on his laptop 'on the hoof' outside of his home? Would it be stretching it to make a claim in that unusual case?"
The second question came from Adzuk, who wanted to know about director's use of home costs:
"A client's old accountant has calculated use of home as office costs around £6k in last two years. It's quite obvious the old accountant has not used flat rates, probabaly used use of home as an office calculator. The client is not provding enough information. Is there any other way to work out this cost?"
