I use SnCl2 as reducing agent, but I am not sure if sulphates present are problem and disable reduction of the ions I want to reduce? Do sufhates react with SnCl2?

Consider which ions you have in your solution after dissolving.  Check probably solubilities of SnSO4. If you get precipitation then your reducer is minimized. Otherwisew sulfate has no impact.

I want to reduce ferrocenium ions with SnCl2, but I made ferrocenium from FeSO4 dissolved in dmso, KOH in methoxyethane and cyclopentadiene, then I neutralized excess KOH with HCl. Ferrocenium should be reduced to ferrocene with SnCl2, but I don't know if sulphates present will disable this...
