HMRC: tax relief for WFH expenses

Date: Tuesday 20 October 2020

If you’ve asked your employees to work from home, and you’ve not reimbursed them already, your employees may be entitled to claim tax relief on additional household expenses they’ve incurred, such as heating and lighting.

From 6 April 2020, this tax relief is based on £6 per week or £26 per month (£4 per week, or £18 per month before 6 April 2020).

Making a claim is easy, tell your employees to go to GOV.UK and search 'claim tax relief for your job expenses'.

It’s quick and secure, and those who are eligible will receive their full entitlement by an adjustment to their tax code.
