As an employee, can I claim expenses from working at home?
Due to COVID-19 working from home has become very common for employees. It raises the question as to whether all the expenses resulting from this can be claimed? (Such as power, internet and printing).
In many instances employees are expected to absorb these additional costs acquired from working from home. Meaning the general rule of them is that you can’t claim these expenses against your income.
However, in some cases your employer may offer a special allowance to cover working from home expenses. Your employer will need to confirm if this allowance is taxable or not.
