Description

Working from home is more popular than ever, with hybrid working already a permanent feature for many businesses. If structured correctly, legitimate tax savings can be obtained when working from home.

A number of tax issues and opportunities exist. These include:

  • Deductions for self-employed, and tax-free payments to employees.
  • What costs qualify?
  • The new square metre rate method.
  • Determinations EE001 and EE002: Exempt payments to employees for use of telecommunication tools, and for working from home during Covid-19.
  • How does working from home impact FBT and motor vehicle reimbursement options.
  • Does a home office eliminate the need to pay FBT on a car driven home for work purposes?
  • Other home office issues including: GST treatment, home offices creating a NZ permanent establishment / branch, and does a home office impact the sale of the home (for example, Brightline exemptions)?
