Considering a Home Office?

For convenience and efficiency, home offices are critical to our growing mobile workforce.  Even if you don’t work from home, a functional home office can help you manage your household operations.

One benefit to having a home office is that business owners have the opportunity to deduct the use of a home office that is specifically used for conducting business. This is called the home office deduction. Even though the word “home” is part of this term, this deduction can apply to any kind of residence, including apartments and mobile homes. It can be utilized by homeowners and renters alike.

Here are some tips to help you prepare for a home office remodeling project.

  • Location is important; you need a space that separates you from your home’s activity centers.
  • Consider how your office will be used.  Will your workstation accomodate your computer, printer, scanner, fax machine ?  Who will  use the office space?
  • Identify your furniture and specialized equipment.  What kind of seating arrangement do you need?  Do you need art boards or white boards?

Develop a plan that includes a target date for completion and the amount of money you are able to invest in this project.
