Running expenses

You can also claim a deduction for the additional running expenses you incur as a result of working from home. Running expenses are expenses relating to the use of facilities within your home, and include:

  • Electricity expenses for heating, cooling and lighting

  • The purchase of office equipment used for work – for example stationery, office furniture, laptops, etc.

  • The decline in value of office furniture and furnishings

  • Other items used for work (e.g. laptops) that have been purchased prior to the beginning of that financial year, and not claimed as a purchase in previous tax claims

  • Internet expenses

  • Phone expenses
