    my work has grown considerably in the last year, so i need to be on the ball with what sort of things i can and cant claim for as ive not really claimed for much in the past, i know basics like work equipment etc, but what else can you claim for? im a newbie in this area i must admit.

    If you can get away with it why not. Seems a bit much though im surprised that never got flagged.

    Yeah it doesnt include a packed lunch though.

    Yeah its your office. Your are going to use a % of electric doing work stuff as well as using the internet. You cant claim the full expense or so im told because its not 100% used for work use.

    Im not sure the exact amounts, my accountant sorts all that stuff out

    dont forget your work van and fuel. plus if you have a loan for a car or van you can claim back the interest on the loan.
