Crazy business expense claims
HMRC has published a list of what they claim to be the most outlandish expenses that customers tried to offset against business profits:
Holiday flights to the Caribbean
Luxury watches as Christmas gifts for staff - from a company with no employees
International flights for dental treatment ahead of business meetings
Pet food for a Shih Tzu ‘guard dog’
Armani jeans as protective clothing for painter and decorator
Cost of regular Friday night ‘bonding sessions’ - running into thousands of pounds.
Underwear - for personal use
A garden shed for private use - plus the costs of the space it takes up in the garden
