Starting a service accommodation business in the UK can be a great way to make an income, but it is important to understand the legal requirements and regulations associated with running the business. One of the most important areas to consider is allowable expenses. This blog post will provide an overview of what constitutes an allowable expense for a service accommodation business in the UK, and how to ensure that all expenses are correctly accounted for.

First and foremost, it is important to understand the difference between allowable and non-allowable expenses. Allowable expenses are those that are necessary for the running of the business. These include things like rent, insurance, utilities, repairs and maintenance, advertising, staff costs and any other expenditure that is necessary for the business to operate. Non-allowable expenses are those that are not necessary for the business to operate, such as entertainment or luxury items. When it comes to allowable expenses for a service accommodation business in the UK, there are a few key areas to consider.

In general, any expense that is necessary for the running of the business is considered to be an allowable expense. It is also important to note that there are certain other costs that may be considered an allowable expense. These include costs associated with operating a website or app, such as web hosting and development costs. Additionally, any legal fees or professional fees that are incurred in the course of running the business may also be considered an allowable expense. Running a Service Accommodation business unlike the traditional rental marketplace, capital costs which doesn’t affect profit may be claimed against tax. Good sound advice should be taken from a qualified accountant especially one who specialises in Property.
