SETTING UP A HOME OFFICE
There are other options to making use of your flat, such as converting it into a home office. Owners and subtenants who are 18 years and above are eligible to do this. They must also meet some other conditions such as:
Ensuring the place remains a residence. The work area must be ancillary to the residence and all activities must be confined within the flat.
The business must be registered with the Accounting & Corporate Regulatory Authority unless it is exempted from registration under the Business Registration Act.
The flat cannot be a registered address for a society.
The environment in the flat cannot be noisy and must not emit smoke or other harmful substances.
The business cannot encourage illegal or unlawful behaviour, such as gambling or prostitution.
There cannot be advertisements or posters displayed and there must be no selling of physical goods.
