If Carlsberg Built Home Office Garden Buildings, They Would Probably Look Like This…


An increasing number of people now find themselves ‘working from home’ – it is either entirely new to them or has simply become the ‘status quo’ rather than an occasional day or two a month. 

So a permanent, dedicated, stand alone working space is now a necessity. 

Enter the home office/studio garden building.

A building that will allow you to set up shop at home without the distractions and inconvenience that can sometimes cause. 

A building that will look good in your garden, will be hand made by skilled craftsmen to order, in other words, a quality, bespoke garden building. You will be proud to show friends and family, and proud to sit and work in, looking out through those glorious bi-folding doors offering a panoramic view of your garden. 

Your new home office will be light, those to those full length bi-folding doors, and you can leave your work stuff in there – in situ – without fear of it being moved or having coffee or food spilt all over it. 

And you can rest assured, it will be safe & secure. 

Those solid oak bi-folding doors are ultra secure – stainless steel fittings,54 mm think with 24mm toughened double glazed doors, 3 point locking system and internal slide bolts.


You can add heat in the midst of Winter if you need it or in the Summer, open up those doors to keep you cool. 

And finally, you can even reclaim some tax too

Home office/studios – what you can claim back tax for & what you can’t…

If you’re now working from home more often then you might consider adding a purpose built home office in your garden. 

Working from home can be great, but it also has its distractions and you may struggle to separate home from office in terms of boundaries and storage etc. 

This is where a dedicated, purpose built home office garden building can be the ideal solution. You get space, peace & quiet, storage room for your business and a beautiful view, not to mention lockable doors! 

But what are the tax perks? Are there any? 

Yes and no. Before we go any further, you can get this post in a handy PDF to read later if you like, here it is

Let’s get the bad news out the way. Although a garden building is officially a moveable item (can be done but usually they stay put) the HMRC view it as a structure from whence your biz operates so unfortunately, you can’t claim the initial build cost/price. 

Even associated costs like delivery and erection charges, even the cost of decoration fall into this evil trap. 

Now for the good news: 

You can claim for cost of furniture for example under capital allowances. 

You can also claim for the cost of thermal insulation if you feel you need it (our brand new home office comes with beautiful double glazed folding doors with the most secure locking you could wish for) 

You can claim for running costs such as heating, lighting and running water if you have a separate supply into your new home office building (not extended from your home) 

Repairs are also included, this includes redecoration costs for example. 

More good news:  The VAT rules regarding structures are different to those for income tax & corporation tax. Although as we outlined earlier, you can’t claim for the entire purchase cost, you can claim the VAT element of your new home office garden building – HURRAH 

This short guide is the briefest of guides. We would always advise you to check with your accountant…
