Working from home deduction from 1 July 2022


The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has issued new guidelines to help you claim running expenses while working from home starting 1 July 2022.

Under this guidance, the ATO will allow you to claim 67 cents per hour for working from home. This claim is a simplified method that includes expenses for:

  • Energy expenses (electricity and gas) for lighting, heating/cooling and electronic items used while working from home
  • Internet expenses, mobile and home telephone expenses, and
  • stationery and computer consumables.

This amount differs from the previous couple of years when 80 cents per hour was available if you were required to work from home due to COVID-19.

However, under the revised fixed-rate method, you can now make a separate claim for depreciation on furniture and equipment you use when working from home.

To make this claim, you must keep a diary of the days you work from home. This can be backed up by evidence such as your timesheet or a roster.

If you require more information about calculating this deduction, contact Clout Advisory to assist you further.
