Work from home shortcut method extended

October 21, 2021

The ATO has extended the availability of the “shortcut” rate set out in Practical Compliance Guideline PCG 2020/3 for claiming work-from-home running expenses to 30 June 2022.

This means eligible taxpayers can claim additional running expenses incurred between 1 March 2020 and 30 June 2022 at the rate of 80c per work hour, provided records are kept of the number of hours worked from home.
