This course addresses the truths, myths and ‘red flags’ related to home office. You’ll learn how to help your client maximize their deduction; when to use the Simplified Option – and when not to use it; how to protect the deduction for the long term; and when it’s important to fight for it, even if the deduction is small – and when not to use it at all. And why it’s a valuable deduction even for a business that has losses for years.
