Working from home tax relief continues, but fewer employees likely to be eligible this year


HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has retained its online portal for claiming working from home tax relief for the 2022/23 tax year.

But, while the rules and value of the relief remain unchanged, unless there are any further lockdowns this year far fewer people are likely to be able to claim.

That is because only people instructed by their employers to work from home some or all the time can make a claim. The rules once again require that costs must have increased as a result of the arrangement.

With most hybrid workers free to work in the office if they wish, most people in this situation will not be eligible for the relief.

Relief worth £6 a week can be claimed through the online portal without needing to provide evidence of increased expenses. Taxpayers benefit according to the rate at which they pay income tax. A basic rate taxpayer will save 20 per cent of £6 a week (£1.20).

If you have been instructed to work from home and have incurred increased costs as result, you can check your eligibility and claim here.
