• Got more questions that the Internet will give me answers but I love you guys, so here goes...

    So my freelance work will mainly consists of delivering software training courses etc. I am about to drop £2k for a super duper PC desktop so I can have a much faster machine to design and write the courses, test out new stuff / plugins etc etc before teaching them. If I have time, will probably start taking freelance design work too... Teaching won't happen at home though... I would want to put the PC down as business expense, would it qualify?

    In what order should I do this or does it matter? I need to register as a sole trader, open a business account, buy that computer.

    Also, how do I prove that the computer is 100% business use in order to qualify for business expense? It's one of those things that it's practically impossible to use for work only... (I do have a very good laptop that does everything I need but just not fast enough for the 3D / game design software I will be teaching)

    I am about to buy a new bike too... business or no business, can I claim half of cost as business expense because I probably will ride it to my training courses?

    That order. You would (personally) loan the company the funds. You also need an accountant.
