Whatever kind of blog you run, or influencer activity you’re involved in, there’ll be certain costs associated with the work you do.
These can be listed as business expenses when you do your tax return. The total cost of them then gets taken off your total income for the year, lowering the amount of tax you owe overall.
It’s important to note that to claim the full amount of something as a business expense it needs to be used solely for your work as a blogger. Otherwise you can only claim a percentage of it (or maybe even not at all if it’s one of the areas HMRC is strict over, like gym memberships).
Say, for example, you use a camera for your blog but use it for other stuff too, like holidays. You’d have to work out what percentage of the time you use it for your blog – and that’s how you’d work out how much of its value you can write off your tax bill.
