Does your client have employees working from home because of COVID-19?
If they’ve asked their staff to work at home because of COVID-19 then they may have additional household expenses.
If your client hasn’t reimbursed them, the employees can claim tax relief on £6 per week or £26 per month for these extra costs.
The employees can only claim if your client has asked them to work from home for all or part of the week. For example, because there’s a rota system in place to allow for social distancing. How can employees claim?
The quickest and easiest way for them to claim is to apply online at GOV.UK. It’s secure and ensures they’ll receive their full entitlement. The employees’ tax code will be adjusted, reducing the tax they pay.
