I have a small business. How much can I deduct for office space? My home is 800m2, using 80m2 as real office space. My homeloan deduction is R42 000 (R22 000 interest)?

You would be able to deduct 10% of the interest and other related costs like insurance, electricity and the domestic and levies/rates. You will need to prove this to SARS so keep a spreadsheet showing these costs and all the actual invoices for the expenses.

Thank you Tim. Will this deduction have an influence when selling the house one day?

Yes it would as you would have to apportion the proceeds/primary residence exclusion.
