Can UK Self Employed Sole Traders apply the Worldwide Subsistence

Resolved Question:

Hi, Can UK Self Employed Sole Traders apply the Worldwide Subsistence Rates on overseas travel and food costs, or are these only for people in employment? I work as a conference host / speaker so need to know the most expedient options in terms of claiming expenses as a UK tax payer. Thanks

Thanks for your question
These are for employees (and employers to use a guide) only
You as a sole trader would just claim your actual out of pocket expenses for all business related expenditure
