I am a sole proprietor of a business and work from a study at home. If I refurbish my study (e. G. Put in fixed cupboards and shelving) with the express purpose of improving my business workspace, is the cost of the refurbishment tax deductible? If so, under what item do I place it? Similarly, if I buy items for my home office (e. G. Office chair), are those tax deductible?

The office chair, if less than R7000 will be deductible in full for the first year, otherwise you would need to depreciate it based on the Wear and Tear rates Fixed cupboards and shelving, as part of an office, would be depreciated as well and you can use the same calculator for fixtures and fittings.
