WORKING FROM HOME DURING THE PANDEMIC?
You may be eligible for a tax rebate worth up to £125 per tax year! HMRC are helping to cover the costs of working from home such as high electricity and telephone bills.
AM I ELIGIBLE?
You can claim if all of the following apply -
• You were told to work from home by your employer
• Have not been re-imbursed by your employer for your expenses
• Do not file a tax return
Even if you worked from home for 1 day, you are still eligible to claim.
HOW MUCH IS THIS WORTH?
This depends on the rate at which you pay tax.
Basic rate payers will get £62 per year.
