if you are not on payroll of company, your income would be treated as income from business/profession. In such case, you can show expenses such as mobile/telephone bills, internet expenses, hardware purchase (if any), petrol expenses to visit client's offices etc.

For income from business/profession, one has to make profit/loss accounts and all these expenses would be deducted as business expenses.
