Hello and welcome to the site. Thank you for your question.

You would claim capital allowance for this van. You could claim 100% annual investment allowance on it but restrict it to 60% business use.

If you are completing a short version of self-employment section then you put £1,800 in box headed annual investment allowance within the section "Tax Allowances for vehicles and equipment (capital allowances).

I am providing you a link of SA103(s) that shows where your capital allowance for the van would go..(its box 23)

https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/354317/sa103s.pdf


You can also claim 60% of interest paid on that loan.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.

If you have any other questions, please ask me before you rate my service – I’ll be happy to respond.

Thank you for your reply. Yes I fill out the short version as my income is around £20k (I also have a paye part time employment)
When you say I could claim 100% annual investment allowance do I show that anywhere?
I understand putting the £1800 in box 23.
Also which box would I put the interest amount in to claim for
Many thanks

Kevin, thank you for your reply.

Box 23 deals with 100% AIA.. you don't show it anywhere else.

Interest payments would normally go in Box 17 - Interest and bank and credit card etc. financial charges.

As your turnover is below £79,000, you may just put your total expenses in Box 20 (total allowable expenses) rather than filling in the whole section.
These expenses would include interest charges.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
