Claim Covid Remote Working Tax Relief?

Covid tax Relief for working from home

Employees not already reimbursed for any additional costs of pandemic-related homeworking, may be entitled to reimbursement by way of tax relief.


Staff may have racked up some additional household costs, if they’ve had to work at home on a regular basis this past year. Either for all, or part of the working week. This includes being told to work from home because of coronavirus.

Extra costs include things like heating, metered water bills and business calls ‘incurred wholly and necessarily as a result of working from home’. Costs that stay the same, whether working at home or not, don’t qualify for tax relief.

If your business doesn’t already reimburse staff for additional costs, you may want to communicate to employees, that they may be eligible to claim. Or, if you are an employee, you can enquire yourself at HMRC Online, for periods of homeworking up to 5 April 2022.

Rhys is terrific to work with. He helped us close our books each month, keep our taxes on-track, and readily answer day-to-day questions. Cares as much about my business as I do, which is great to see. He picks out problems before they happen and always explains everything to me and makes sure I have gone away understanding what that problem was so ensure it wouldn’t arise again. I am now finally confident in my ability to understand my own business. Highly recommended!! Diolch Rhys!
