I am a business owner and I spend the mornings at the business and attend to all administrative matters from my office at home during the afternoon. Can I claim pro-rata (based on floor space of the home office) water & electricity, telephone & insurance for my home as home office expenses?

If the business income is declared in your personal name, yes you can claim the home office expenses. Otherwise the expenses should then be claimed through the business tax return.
