    Self employed lease car expenses 14th Apr 18 at 8:16 PM
    Leasing a car for self employment is 100% expenses isnít it?

    I hear itís far better to lease rather than buy when your self employed
    Nothing has been fixed since 2008, it was just pushed into the future

    There are a few websites now like air b&b but for your car. is one of them.

    Can you hire out a lease car on one of these sites?

    Even if your not supposed to, how would they know?

    As the car would not solely be used for your business then the answer is no, 100% of the costs cannot be ascribed to the business.
