Welch LLP & HKCBA Presents - Employee Home Office Expenses Deduction
Recently the CRA released detailed guidance on the home office expenses deduction that employees may claim on their 2020 personal income tax return (T1) due to COVID-19. The COVID-19 specific guidance has made the home office expenses deduction available to more Canadians and simplified the way eligible employees can claim these expenses.

On February 11th, Welch LLP Senior Manager, Jessica Zhang-Chapman will cover the details you need to know to be ready to deal with the relevant sections on your 2020 T1.

Topics will include:
• Eligibility: who can claim
• Two available methods and how they work:
o Temporary flat rate method;
o Detailed method
• How to claim home office expenses on your personal tax return
• Employer-provided benefits and allowances in the Covid-19 context (home office equipment, commuting costs including parking, etc.)

After the presentation, you will have the opportunity to ask questions during a live Q&A Session with Jessica.
