    When to claim accountant expense, same year or can it be added to previous year?

    Doing tax return for 2020-2021, paid accountant at the beginning of this month to check it. I gave them all my expenses including their fees and they put it in the tax return. But now that I thought about it because I paid in the 2021-2022 tax year I should add this expense to the next tax return.

    Is it fine to add expenses paid this year to previous tax year? Maybe just an oversight by the accountant.

    Expenses should be claimed when they're committed or paid, so it looks like a mistake to me.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

      The accountant has to start work after 6 April 2021 in order to cover the whole tax year of 2020-2021..

      So accountant's bill is correctly entered as an expense in current year.
