Working From Home due to Covid Restrictions?
HMRC rules relaxed for the tax years 20/21 and 21/22
Make your claim and get a Xmas present from HMRC of at least £62.
If as an employee you are working at home as a result of Coronavirus but have not been reimbursed the additional costs by your employer, you may claim a deduction from earnings.
HMRC have advised that as long as an employee you have been required to work from home at some point during 2020-21 they will accept a claim for home-working for the whole 2020-21 tax year. This is extended to 2021-22 up until the end of the pandemic
Relief will not be restricted if you returned to your workplace before 6 April 2021 or if you only worked from home on a part-time basis.
As an alternative to claiming actual expenses which can be impractical to calculate, you may claim HMRC’s home working allowance of £6 per week.
