Hi everyone, I work online and I need to use a VPN. Can I claim it back as a business expense?
I see no reason why not any more than internet access is a business expense.
No me neither...but would like to see what you guys think....
Is it being used for the business?
I'm assuming you're talking about one of these Anonymity VPNs, (hence why you think it is unclear) as opposed to some sort of hosted corporate VPN or similar.
Out of interest, what kind of business do you find yourself needing a VPN?
To cover all bases you should check with your accountant.
But I would have thought so. It is after all a software service.
So can a XXXL Papa John's pizza, with sides and a drink.
If it's needed for the business then it is an expense that can be set against taxable profit.
This is where I’ve been going wrong then as I’ve been trying to claim for Domino’s. I’ll head to Papa Johns next time.
Thanks for answering.
The use of a VPN is genuinely needed for what I am doing.
I know a few of you maybe a bit baffled why I would need a vpn for an online business.
We all make mistakes.
Think I will get a papa johns pizza tomorrow. Thanks for letting me know!
Yes, as if you use your home internet for remote support of customers, or VPN into your company for management purposes/telecommuting, you can claim at least some of the cost as a business expense.
