Claiming for household bills (tax!)

I was told before that i could claim a percentage of heat and light as i have an office (bedroom with a computer desk and no bed).

I know it depends on the number of rooms in the house and how long the room is used for "work".  But does anyone have any clue about this.

Im thinking of trying to claim for elec/gas/broadband/phone bill etc.

Re: Claiming for household bills (tax!)

Re: Claiming for household bills (tax!)

You can claim for heat/light/phone/internet and more etc but the % will be different depending on your circumstances, call the I.R. and they will advise you,and get them to commit it in writing so you have a record of %'s agreed, often its 15% of power and between 75%-100% of comms. but it does depend on indiv circumstances

Re: Claiming for household bills (tax!)

I put this question to my accountants Tax Watch Dog recently and was advised that if I had a seperate room as an office I could claim a percentage of the bills ( depending on how many rooms I have ).

However I was advised that when I came to sell the house I would have to pay a business tax as part of the house is used solely for a business.

The alternative they suggested suited me better and that was to claim a flat £250 allowance for someone who uses part of a room for business work.

Hope this helps

Re: Claiming for household bills (tax!)

Im planning on claiming all of my mobile bill.  The house phone is literally a few pence every quarter.  Its only there for the broadband.

It seems to vary quite abit, how much everyone is claiming.

I suppose it depends on how you split the bills too.  My partner pays half of the gas/elec etc.  So it would be split again.

I'm the same Lisa.  I don't get a VAT invoice either.
I just do a screen print every month, including the email from O2 saying that my bill is ready and hopefully that will suffice!

I know mine claims a 3rd of electric gas home telephone bill and all of my moby bill.

to work out your % for home bills count the rooms excluding bathrooms/hallways and if you use one room SOLELY for office use you can claim for that percentage of the rooms in your home ie, lounge,kitchen,dining room,3 bedrooms,office= 7 rooms = 14.28% of bills....the bills are heat,light,buildings insurance and council tax.....not contents insurance or water. communications relates to the percentages you use
oh and Nat Ins contributions are not tax deductible so don't claim for those...

have fun

Re: Claiming for household bills (tax!)

Went to the tax office yesterday.  They were very helpful and i got my forms all filled in.   At long last!!

They no longer work out a percentage of bills.  Now they give you an allowance of approx £2 per week.  This covers light and heat etc.  It wasnt too bad.  Worked out i could claim about £100 for last year.
