How do I claim business in home expenses (T2125) for two address?I moved during 2014.

I have the same problem.  The software doesn't seem to have an easy way to do this.  So I checked with a CPA friend about what would be acceptable to CRA.

He said CRA is less concerned about where you lived and for how long, than they are that you are claiming correct amount for both your residences.  Don't worry about addresses, just the figures.  Combine the two residences' totals and input that.  

This is how I did it:

1.)  Add your utilities together and input the totals into the designated spaces in the form T2125.

2.)  Add up the total area for both residences and input on next page where it says,

           "Total area or rooms in the home".

3.)  Add up total area used in both residences.  Divide area used by total area and input answer into where it says,

           "Area, (m²or ft²) or number of rooms, of the workspace".

Keep a worksheet of your figures for your records.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
