That's good news - thanks for your quick response
Following on...I've since taken over the B&B and set the business up as a limited company. I am a director and employee of that company. as part of my work for the company I have to live on the premises to manage the business just as I did when I was working on a contract management basis however my accountant has advised me that the space I occupy must be accounted for as a benefit in kind and thus a % of the running costs of the house can not be claimed as business expenses.
This doesn't make sense to me. Why is it a benefit when i'm employed by my own company and not when I was employed by a 3rd party company?
