    My back has been giving me trouble on and off for a few years now. I am a chef and suffer from it when I have to work. Finally I will see an osteopath about it and was wandering can I submit his invoice/part of it as an expense? I am a sole trader. Thanks

    How did you hurt your back?

    Problem was not caused by an accident, being 6.2" and working for over 25 years in kitchens with low work benches probably didn't help

    On the face of it, no.

    come to think of it I did hurt it at work. Does that make a difference?

    No as its not wholly and exclusively for business purposes.

    Thanks for all the replies. I guess I am not using my back wholly and exclusively for the business purposes so can not claim.
