can I claim rent for service space and home office allowance?

Using the Self-Employed (UK) version, I use an office space in my home for 30-40 hours/month and want to claim the easy allowance for this, but I also rent a space for my service (Massage Therapy) for 2 days per week, but when I try to claim both for tax it puts my rent into the "Disallowable" section? does that mean I cannot claim it and if so, how can I change it to allowable?


Thanks for visiting us, natalie.c.devlin,

Allow me to share information about the categories available in QuickBooks Self-Employed (UK) region.

The categories available in your QuickBooks Self-Employed account includes the SA103F deduction that you can claim as allowable expenses for self-employment.

 To help you decide whether you can claim Rent for service space or Home Office allowance, I highly suggest contacting an accountant or Tax professional for them to further check. You can check this link to contact TurboTax support:

Here’s also a great resource that you can check on for more detailed information about SA103F categories.

You are always welcome to come back in if you have further questions about your QuickBooks Self-Employed account, I’d be happy to answer it for you.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
