Made quite a lot of train journeys because of work.

Have kept the tickets.

Can I claim back the VAT

I’m a qualified/experience joiner and work my day job for a construction company. In my spare time I sell furniture online.
I had a custom order, they wanted some wood cut to a specific size. We agreed and they paid through paypal.
I dropped the wood off to a drop off point which I thought was their office or something but could just be a collection point.

Just before lockdown I agreed with a client to produce some floor plans.
This meant surveying the site, taking measurements and creating a digital floor plan which I would send to them.
I attended the site before lockdown but because of restrictions couldn’t complete measurements of all areas.
We agreed that I would return at a later point to finish measurements. Then lockdown happened and I have not been able to return to site.

Hi, just before lockdown I registered a business with companies house.
I had an appointment with a bank to open a business account but because of lockdown I never went. I was going to apply online but wanted to go in to ask for some advice.

I have recently been looking at a 5000 square foot storage. It will be used primarily to store stock.
Most of the stock will likely be labelled onsite and left at the collection point usually by myself but also might be on occasions somebody else. There will be no other works going on. Only loading and unloading stock and on occasions labelling the products.
The landlord has valued the building at £800,000, or so. However I think this is the building/infrastructure and not contents/stock.
