As a freelancer working from home I realize I can claim certain expenses such as electricity. I have seen several sources indicate that I can claim a percentage based on the size of my home office in relation to my entire home, is that the rule?
My work space is maybe 10% of my home but I can confidently say that at least 30% of my electricity expenses is due to the various electronic equipment running 24/7 in that area. How much can I claim, 10% or 30%?
There must be some basis for your apportionment and the generally accepted one is the size of the office relative to the overall property. If you can justify to SARS that you use more electricity than the apportionment based on size then you they should accept that. The justification has to valid.
