Childcare expenses


In some cases, you may need someone to look after your child in order to be able to carry out your self employed activity, such as running your groups.

However childcare is not a direct business cost and cannot be claimed as an allowable business expense.

An allowable business expense is where the cost is wholly and exclusively for the purpose of the trade – therefore childcare does not come under this purpose.
