A reminder that if you are a UK taxpayer you can apply for tax relief for working from home through the Government Gateway. You can claim for an exact amount, or for relief from a flat rate of £6.00 per week (equal to £1.20 per week less tax on the 20% rate).

It is a simple process using a government gateway account. If you don’t already have a government gateway account, you can create one on the gov.uk website https://www.access.service.gov.uk/registration/email.

The HMRC have set up a microsite to deal with these claims which can be reached via:
