Can my company pay for my Spanish Lessons

I am a Contractor operating through my own limited company – can my company pay for my Spanish Lessons?

Any training would need to be related to business need, so if learning Spanish will help your company win work then this is acceptable – so long as this purely for business purposes. If HMRC can argue that it is partly business and partly a personal purpose then you would be in a weak position to argue your case – if you would have had no intention to study Spanish if it wasn’t for your business, then it is for a business need.
