i am an IT contractor and I would like to go to a seminar overseas. I'm paying for this by myself, however, I believe it is related to what I do and could be classed as an educational expense.
The other thing is the conference only goes for around 2 days but whilst I'm there, I figure I may as well spend a week or two visiting the sites as I'm flying all the way there.
My question is, can I claim my flights and the hotel expenses for the two nights I'm at the conference on tax? I wouldn't have gone to the country if it wasn't for the conference.
