HMRC working from home rebate

As we know, millions of us are now working from home due to Covid-19 but you may be eligible for a tax rebate. According to HMRC, anyone told to work from home for any length of time during the lockdown can claim a £125 tax rebate to spend on bills and other home working essentials. You only need to have worked from home for one day to be eligible for it. You can claim your tax refund by following this link:

Will my employer change my address with HMRC

Unfortunately, not necessarily. If you update your address with your employer it doesn’t automatically update HMRC’s records. Even if your employer files its tax report (p14) on how much you have made in that ax year, HMRC still wouldn’t have updated your address necessarily. This is why you would need to complete a HMRC change of address.

Latest HMRC updates in 2022

In June 2022, HM Revenue and Customs  (HMRC) advised many citizens to be wary of scams. Millions of tax credit customers are set to renew their information by July 31st, 2022.

These could look like offers of tax rebates, discussions of tax bills, or misinformation around the chancellor Rishi Sunak’s announcement of relief for millions of Brits.

Following an announcement in May 2022 by the Chancellor, over 8 million citizens will receive a £150 and/or £650 one-off stipend from the Government (based n your circumstances). This is expected to be paid around September 2022. If you’re moving home during or before this period, it will not affect your one-off payment from HMRC.

Scammers may try to use this loophole to take advantage of unsuspecting taxpayers. You will not be required to pay anything to claim the stipend.

Can you email HMRC?

At the moment you are unable to email HMRC. The same applies to other governmental institutions and services such as the NHS, DWP, and DVLA. You can contact HMRC via phone (0300 200 3300) or by letter to:
