In a nutshell

In this Special Report, you'll see how to structure your homeworking arrangements in the most tax-efficient ways. It considers the effects of homeworking on income tax, National Insurance, capital gains tax and VAT.

While the tax rules for homeworking have remained largely unchanged for years, coronavirus has brought them under closer scrutiny and forced some minor concessions from HMRC. This Special Report will help you take full advantage. It examines the tax implications of homeworking for business owners, employers and their workers including:

  • The consequences of working from home because of coronavirus
  • Special homeworking allowances for directors and employees
  • Rules for business journeys starting or ending at home
  • Flat rate deductions for sole traders and business partners
  • Employer-provided living accommodation
  • How the capital gains tax rules apply if you’ve worked from home
  • Reclaiming VAT on homeworking expenses
