Do you operate your business from home? 
If your home is your main place of business, you may be able to claim the business portion of some expenses. You may be able to calculate your home-based business running expenses using: 
  • A fixed rate of 52c an hour for each hour you operate your business from home which covers heating, cooling, lighting and depreciation of furniture and furnishings. Phone and internet expenses are calculated separately, or; 
  • The temporary rate of 80c per hour for home based businesses operating between 1 March 2020 - 30 September 2020. This covers all expenses normally included in the 52c rate but includes deductible running expenses within this rate.
