Save on home office expenses

Setting up a home office can cost a whole lot less when you package expenses like furniture, computers and software.

How it works

All you need to do is purchase or rent any home office items you’d like, and then let us know what it cost you. We’ll arrange for your employer to set aside that amount from your pre-tax salary and then reimburse you what you spent – using your pre-tax dollars.

What you need to know

You can buy as many items as you like, since there’s no limit on how many times you can package. But keep in mind that each item you buy must be $300 or less. If an item is worth more than $300, you have to rent it.

Examples of what can be packaged include:

  • a computer – either purchased or rented
  • furniture
  • fax machine or photocopier
  • stationary
  • computer software
  • repairs and maintenance on your computer.

You may only package the percentage of the item cost that you use for business purposes.
