We study fine properties of currents in the framework of geometric measure theory on metric spaces developed by Ambrosio and Kirchheim in [1] and we prove a rectifiability criterion for flat currents of finite mass. We apply these tools to study the structure of the dis-tributional Jacobians of functions in the space BnV, defined by Jerrard and Soner in [2]. We define the subspace of special functions of bounded higher variation and we prove a closure theorem.
