Top five worst tax return expense claims

HMRC has published a list of what they describe as the Top five worst tax return expense claims.

These are, apparently, the five most outrageous personal expenses claims included in 2013-14 Self Assessment tax returns.
The costs for storing Mars Bars overnight in a fridge.The cost of a pair of flip flops so I don’t have to walk barefoot between my work’s changing and shower rooms.The costs for my intimate waxing. I bought a second hand car to get me from home to work so I didn’t have to walk. I purchased my own flat, so I need to claim back the money I spent on the furniture.  I can't help but wonder how many of these were inspired by reports of claims about the expenses that MPs have claimed in the past!
