Princess Antimony’s Makeup Castle

Some friends of mine emerged over the other day. It was a no-makeup kind of day, and I had planned on wearing only foundation. But something happened to me when I was in front of the mirror, and I developed this look. I actually used a natural red eyeshadow that day, but the concept is the same.

You may be required to supply proof that the expense has been incurred and that it was solely for business use so good record-conserving is crucial. Business information can be saved electronically or as paper copies and should be stored for at least six years in case HMRC requests them.

Expenses incurred in the working of a business are usually allowable. The prices of operating an office, transport, and travel, purchasing items to sell or the uncooked materials, which will likely be manufactured into a product, and promoting prices are generally all deductible bills. Depending on the business, staff prices could make up a big proportion of deductible business expense with salaries, National Insurance contributions (NICs), pension contributions, and benefits all adding up. While most bills might be deductible from earnings, …
