There’s not a lot of things that the tax man gives you for free as an employee or anyone that’s been working from home in 2020. You don’t even need receipts to claim.
You’re eligible if you’ve had additional household costs due to working from home on a regular basis either part time or full time.
How much will you get?
You will get tax relief on £6 a week from 6 April 2020 (for previous tax years the rate was £4 a week). This equates to £62.40 for a basic rate taxpayer or £124.80 for a higher rate tax payer.
How to claim
You can claim this tax relief through your self assessment tax return or if you are an employee, on the government online portal
