You can pay yourself more now for using your home for business

The tax free amount that employers can pay employees for using their home for business without needing to provide HMRC any evidence of actual home costs is going up from 6 April 2012 from £3 to £4 a week. This makes the new annual amount £208 (previously £156).

We are able to claim more than this figure if the actual costs of working from home exceed this amount.

You should call us to discuss this if you think we can claim more than £4 week for using your home for business.
