    Use of Home as an Office

    The Government guideline is that £4 per week can be claimed for use of home as an office without the need for receipts and evidence of costs.

    £4 x 52 weeks = £208

    or

    £18 x 12 months = £216

    If you wish to claim additional costs then you will be required to keep receipts.

     

    If you work at home voluntarily

    If you've agreed with your employer to work at home voluntarily - under a "homeworking arrangement" - they may still contribute towards your expenses but don't have to.

    If your employer contributes up to £4 per week (£18 per month) towards your expenses, you won't need to provide receipts.

    If your employer contributes more than £4 per week you will need to be able to show what you've spent to get the tax relief.

    You won't have to pay tax or National Insurance contributions on the amount you receive from your employer (if it is more than £4 per week you must have the receipts to show what has been spent).
