Can Any Travel Expenses Be Claimed For Business Trips?

Q. My husband and I are joint partners in a business for profit sharing purposes. The work requires me to do a lot of travelling on business and my husband accompanies me occasionally. As my husband is not involved in the business purpose of these trips (e.g. meetings) can any travel expenses be claimed?

A: To be allowable the cost must be ‘wholly and exclusively’ for the purpose of the trade. As your husband does not take any active role in the business you should be disallowing 50% of any travel costs, eating out, accommodation etc.
