Homeworkers can claim costs via tax relief17-Nov-2020
As many people have moved to working from home in response to Covid-19 guidance, it might be worth knowing that they can claim tax relief if they have been required to work from home for even one day.
How much you can claim depends on the rate you pay tax, and you must have paid tax in the year you spent money in relation to home working.
An existing service from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) says you can claim relief on things that are used just for your work, and which you do not use in your private life - but you cannot claim relief on things you’ve spent money on if your employer has already provided you with an alternative.
HMRC ask that you keep records of what you have spent, and claim within 4 years of the end of the tax year that you spent the money.
Don't forget, however, the HMRC sate that you will NOT be able claim Tax Relief if your employer has already paid back your expenses.
