Deduct working at home costs
A nice fiscal advantage
The condition for tax deductibility of the home office is that the room belongs to your private apartment or house. A work corner is not sufficient, it must be a closed room (but not a cellar or storage room, for example).
The amount of the deductibility depends on whether the study is the centre of your professional activity:
- If it is, you can deduct the costs without limit as business expenses.
- If not, the costs are limited to 1,250 EUR per year. And you can only deduct them if you have no other place of work for the work to be done there.
The calculation of the deductible costs is based on the percentage of the work room from the total living space. Accordingly, you can also deduct running costs for heating, electricity, garbage collection, etc. and the furnishing of the room.
💡Even if you have a co-working workplace, you may still be able to deduct a study from your tax bill if you cannot do confidential work such as bookkeeping, taxes, etc.
