New claims needed to continue receiving working from home tax relief

Employees who are continuing to work from home as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic and whose expenses have not been reimbursed by their employers should make new claims to continue receiving working from home tax relief.

This is because claims made in the 2020-21 tax year, which ended on 5 April 2021, will not be carried over automatically to the current 2021-22 tax year.

The relief is intended to cover tax-deductible additional costs incurred by people working from home as a result of the pandemic, such as heating and metered water.

People can choose either to claim relief at a flat rate of £6 a week, which translates to weekly savings of £1.20 or £2.40 for basic and higher rate taxpayers respectively, without needing to submit evidence or they can claim for the actual costs incurred if these are above £6 a week.

Self-Assessment taxpayers can claim the relief on their Self-Assessment tax returns for 2021-22, while people who do not complete a Self-Assessment tax return can claim via here.
