If I have a cellphone contract as well as a contract to pay off a laptop of which both are used mainly for work purposes, I would say 80%. Can I claim Tax refunds on these "assets" and how would I go about calculating the cost of the asset based on the monthly contract price.

Does you employer allow you to use these assets for your work, is it stipulated in your contract or would he provide a letter stating it?

Yes the employer does and it is stated in the contract
