Do you have a rental agreement? Something in writing that explains the arrangement you have set up with the gym.
If you don’t have this, it might be a good idea to get something in writing. In this way when your accountant prepares your taxes he will know how to classify that expense.
All the best to you!
Natalie, Josh, Karin, Michael,
Thanks for your input I appreciate it very much. I know this situation is a bit odd.
A few details, I have brought all of my clients to this gym, none were given to me.
I have no benefits.
I do not have to follow any guidelines about how to train.
I am not reimbursed for anything.
After reading a bit about independent contractors I think I will either be able to claim this as a write off, OR I am being misclassified by my employer and am actually an employee. I will take the advice given by you guys and seek out a tax professional.
