The COVID pandemic caused nearly 70% of full-time employees in the UK to work from home and HMRC are paying out for the entire two years. This is a working from home tax relief worth £624.

Tax relief reduces the amount of tax you pay to HMRC. This means more of your income stays in your pocket giving you extra money to spend on the things you enjoy.

No. To deal with individual expense claims for every employee would be too time consuming for HMRC, so they have established a flat daily rate and are issuing tax relief for the whole year, even if you only worked form home for one day.

Alternatively, we have set up a simple to use, 100% online application that you can use to start your claim today. It only takes two-minutes to complete, and you can be on your way to receiving any tax rebate working from home you are due.
