There are types of use needed to be able to take this very helpful business deduction. First, you use the space exclusively and regularly for your business. Or two, you use the space as storage for business inventory on a regular basis.

    I think it’s really better to use your home to be your office. You won’t spend a lot of money for your space. Company office are just renting so while using your home, you’ll save more.
