First Years Accounts

My annual accounts are due to be posted shortly, but I’m aware that I have not entered any costs that relate to utility costs (I work from home), can I still enter these on Quickfile, even though the accounting period ended 31 October 2019?
Thanks.

In general if omissions of expenses are not material then yes you can add them to the following year.

However bare in mind the rules surrounding apportioning you costs for working from home. The whole cost isn’t allowable.

If not yet submitted to HMRC, than you can enter expenses, dated end of October, why not?
Utility costs are governed by EIM 32815:

so I just put down £216 at the end of the year for utilities, and half the cost of my internet / phone line bundle.
