If you are self-employed and working from home you are entitled to claim the expenses that you incur during the course of your business.
There are two ways to do this:
Beware in claiming that any part of your house is used exclusively for business use as this would compromise any future claim for Private Residence Relief if you were ever to make a gain on the sale of your home. There is also a risk that the authorities would seek to charge business rates if they could argue that use of part of the building was not residential. You may also find planning rules become an issue. For these reasons, I would advise against making any claims from the business for altering the fabric of your home for business use eg converting an attic into an office. If you have to put in special electrics for business use eg telecoms, computers and internet, this type of expense is 100% business related and acceptable to claim.
