My husband ceased employment on 30 June 2021. He met the eligibility criteria to claim the £6/week working from home covid tax allowance as he had to work from home due to covid and had increased home expenses. Can he therefore claim for the FULL 2021-22 tax year? Or because he ceased employment mid way through the tax year, can he only only claim for the 12 weeks up to the date he ceased employment? I have read you only had to have worked from home at some point during the tax year but can’t find any guidance about whether you also had to have been employed for the whole tax year. Thanks

Hi

If he only worked for the employer for 12 weeks during the tax year he should claim the 12 weeks, the guidance for claiming the full year was to avoid having to claim multiple times for the same year.

Thankyou.

Regards.
