Hi Thanks for your question Did your employment originate as based in Yorkshire and then relocate to London or did you take the job knowing it was based in London? Thanks Sam

I took the job knowing it was based in London

Hi Thanks for your response Then I am sorry to say these expenses would not be allowable as expenses as you took the job knowing that you would need to either commute (I appreciate impractical) or incur costs to be near to work - but these are not incurred through the cost of being at work but to attend work - so are not considered as permissible by HMRC Thanks Sam
