Can you get tax relief on time/work donated to charities?

Morning. I have a client who is a tradesman. He donated his time and some materials to a charity and has been told he can claim tax relief on this? I can't find anything to corroborate this but does anyone know if this is correct? He's a sole trader and I believe it was a sort of diy sos thing?

    If he received no money for his time, he can't claim anything for it.
    Materials? See the normal rules on charitable donations for a sole trader.

    Hi @Alisha
    Have a look at the Business Income Manual here , especially the W+E test and here (gift of trading stock).
