    Advice needed on benefits when working from home 11th Apr 18 at 2:57 PM
    I am in full time employment but I work from home. I have been told I could receive a heating and electricity benefit, however, I cannot find information about this. Either it is well hidden or doesn't exist! Can anyone advise me please?! Thanks

    That would be the warm home discount and applications for that will open in a few months for next year, as it's finished now. Criteria depends on you energy supplier. You can check here.

    Do you mean tax relief for working from home? Are you working from home voluntarily?

    Thanks all for your quick responses. I will check those links out. @Darksparkle - no not voluntarily - job is home based due to business keeping costs low - like a virtual office.
