Hi there, @nw99287.

 

You can deduct the actual cost of utilities if you're not claiming the Simplified Home Office deduction. I'd recommend contacting your tax adviser to help you check your eligibility on what method and deductions apply to your business.

 

I've added this article to know more details about managing tax deductions: The ultimate guide to tax deductions for the self-employed.

 

You're always welcome to leave a comment below if you have other questions. I'd be happy to answer them for you.

Thanks, sorry been very busy.

I will take another look at this.

I may see about getting help or having someone else do them for the first time at least.

 

Thanks again!
