I'm attempting online self assment for the first time this year and can't work out how to calculate what we could claim for council tax, mortgage interest, heating, electricity and Property insurance (assume that building).
Called HMRC who said they could just refer me to the Simplified Expenses Helpnote which I read and did the reckoner and am still unsure as to what to do!
Can anyone offer any advice please? My husband is a sole trader, we live in a 3 bedroom semi with 8 rooms, 2 of which are sometimes used for work (we think 6hours each week).
Also is it worth adding any donations to charity, not that it's much but say £200 per annum?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
