    Default Anyone Claiming Working From Home Tax Relief Via Their Umbrella?

    "Required to work from home even for ONE DAY since 6 April? You can claim tax relief for the WHOLE YEAR – worth £60 or £125."

    Noticed this on MoneySavingExpert
    Martin Lewis: Working from home due to coronavirus, even for a day? Claim a year's worth of tax relief

    Anyone managed to claim this through their brolly?

    Question for you: When you read your contract with your umbrella company, what location does it specify for your work?
    (I'm not saying you can't claim back monies based on WFH, just that it might not be through the direction a normal employee would.)
    I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.

    £60?
    hardly worth the effort.

    I don't think it mentions a location in terms of normal working in my employment contract with the brolly. Although the contract between the brolly and the client does mention the client site location, which I've never been able to work on due to Covid.

    its £125 in your pocket.. (£6x52)x 40% - Look, agreed its not an earth shattering amount, but it's a fancy dinner out (more if your partner can also claim), which is always welcome (and that's £125 going to a business that needs it, and not going to Rishi Sunak).
