Sub contractor Expenses
So, the subcontractor returns are about to start coming in and we have the same discussion each year to what a sub contractor can or can't claim for. We have the issue with 'travel and subsistence'... The subcontractor is a sole trader, and therefore can't use the meal rates or 'daily rates' as a deduction in profits, does everyone agree? We have the same battle each year with 'my mate said I can claim £££'S a day!' . Do other accountants just claim a day rate anyway and hope for the best?
