Arnold Ayton is qualified as a Chartered Accountant under the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA), although I currently hold a practicing license under the Institute of Financial Accountants (IFA). I understand Arnie is a very busy accountant and has a lot on his plate. As a result, he can sometimes take a little bit of time to respond during busy periods. However, he has always been prompt with urgent matters and we have not overrun any deadlines whilst we have had him as an accountant. For the non-important requests we make, perhaps an automated/stock reply saying that he’s seen our message and is getting around to the topic would be appreciated rather than feeling obliged to answer with a fully formed response.
Spondoo accounting guides for 2021: How much can you claim for food expenses? HMRC do not state a specific limit on the amount you can spend on food and drink and then claim as an expense. However, they do state that all subsistence costs should be reasonable. Don’t expect the taxpayer to cover a three-course meal at the local Michelin restaurant! There is another rule to be aware of, if you eat with people not employed by the company, including clients and partners. The food and drink in these scenarios are classed as entertainment and no longer solely for subsistence. Thus, in these situations, all of the food and drink is no longer an allowable expense. You cannot divide the receipt into allowable and disqualified expenses.
