A lot of people do their small business accounts & book work at home, in a set area i.e. a small office or separate room. Costs associated with this area can be claimed as ‘Home Office Costs’.

Costs can include a percentage of:

  • Home Phone & Internet
  • Property Rates & Water Rates
  • Property Insurance
  • Electricity

The amount that can be claimed is calculated on the area of the ‘Home Office’ space as a percentage of the total building space of the property.

If you are unsure of how to do this or what you may be able to claim as a business cost then contact us. We specialise in small business accounting, bookkeeping, payroll & HR, and health & safety, and are based in Tauranga.
