HMRC has revealed the top five most outrageous personal expenses claims in 2013-14.
There is less than one week to go until the 31 January deadline to submit the 2014-15 online tax return, to avoid a £100 late return penalty.
The Revenue published the "most bizarre” expenses that taxpayers tried and failed to claim in the 2013/14 self-assessment, which included: 1. The costs for storing Mars Bars overnight in a fridge 2. The cost of a pair of flip flops so I don’t have to walk barefoot between my work’s changing and shower rooms 3. The costs for my intimate waxing 4. I bought a second hand car to get me from home to work so I didn’t have to walk 5. I purchased my own flat, so I need to claim back the money I spent on the furniture. Obviously, HMRC will never allow for these to be processed as genuine claims.
