Claim tax relief while working from home

3 November 2020

From 6 April 2020 you’ve been able to claim up to £6 a week tax-free to cover additional costs if you’ve had to work from home.


If you pay the 20% basic rate of tax and claim tax relief on £6 a week, you would receive £1.20 a week in tax relief (20% of £6 a week) towards the cost of your household bills.

You don’t need to provide any additional paperwork. If you have a Government Gateway ID, it takes a couple of minutes to make a claim. If you don’t have a Government Gateway ID, it only takes 10 minutes to set one up.

HMRC will change your tax code and it will revert back in April next year.
