Support for Business Owners, Employers and Self-employed

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is encouraging business owners, employers and the self-employed in Birmingham to check online to make sure they are not missing out on a range of tax reliefs and allowances.

HMRC’s GOV.UK page summarises items that customers running their own business should explore and could help them keep more of what they earn. At just one click, businesses, employers and the self-employed can find out their eligibility for tax reliefs and financial allowances, as well as how to claim them.

These include:

  • Tax deductible business expenses
  • Research and Development (R&D) tax credits
  • Gift Aid
  • Business rates relief
  • Corporation Tax relief
  • Employment allowance
  • Pre-Trading expenses
  • Reclaiming VAT
