What to Claim when working from home?

When working from home I suggest claiming..

Electricity for heating and cooling and depreciation of office furniture – claim at $0.52 per hour. Keep a logbook of the hours worked from home.

Phone and internet – claim a percentage for work related purpose based on estimated actual work related costs.

Stationery – claim based on actual usage. Keep your invoices to substantiate.

Office equipment (EG laptop owned by you not your employer) – claim depreciation based on actual % of work related activities. Invoice required for purchase of laptop.

Give me a call if you need further clarification or would like me to send you the ATO guide.
