What am I entitled to claim back?

If you are self employed as a sole trader or in a partnership, you are able to include all of your business and work-related expenses in your tax return to offset against your earnings – however, those expenses must be solely incurred in the pursuit of your business. Unfortunately you cannot claim for expenses which have a personal element.
