Have Your Employees Been Working From Home Due to COVID-19?
If so, they may be able to claim tax relief on their expenses!
HMRC have sent an email out this week saying that employees may be able to claim tax relief on additional household expenses that they have incurred as a result of working from home due to COVID-19. As of the 6th April 2020, this tax relief is based on £6 per week or £26 per month (£4 per week, or £18 per month prior to 6th April 2020).
To check their eligibility, they will need to visit this page: https://www.gov.uk/tax-relief-for-employees/working-at-home and if they’re deemed eligible they will receive their entitlement through an alteration to their tax code.
