I want to use the 80c an hr working from home COVID rate. Can I also include my new equipment purchases that individually cost less than $300 but add up to more than $300 in total? I really would like to avoid using the actual cost method as it is quite complicated but I don't want to not claim for these additional expenses.  It appears the 80c includes internet costs, phone calls etc but doesn't specify these sort of purchases. TIA
