Released 13 October 2020
HMRC have reported that 54,800 customers have claimed tax relief for working from home through their new online portal.
From 6 April 2020, employers have been able to pay employees up to £6 a week tax-free to cover additional costs if they have had to work from home. Employees who have not received the working from home expenses payment direct from their employer can apply to receive the tax relief from HMRC.
