Reply To: Self Employed expense – parking fine


A fine isnt incurred in the running of the business, so it cant be a legitimate business expoense. The fine occurs because while at work, the driver did something they shouldn’t have. Doing that wasnt an essential bit of carrying out their business activity ( they could have paid o park while visiting a cliet/ delivering godds etc and thats perfectly fine)

No different to someone in a company car getting a speeding/parking ticket – the company don’t pay it or treat it as a business expense.
