If you’re working from home, even if it’s not full-time, you can now make a tax relief claim of up to £125 for the new 2021-22 tax year.

During the 2020 lockdown, HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) launched a 'microservice' which, even if you only needed to work from home for a day, allowed you to get a whole year's tax relief.

This now applies for the new 2021/22 tax year. The tax relief is provided to workers provided they have been told by their employer to work from home and provided they have not received home expenses payments directly from their organisation.

If you've already claimed for 2020/21, you MUST CLAIM AGAIN for the 2021/22 tax year, via the same microservice.  If you haven’t claimed for the previous tax year  (2020/21) you can do both at once.
