Working from home and home to office mileage

Someone's bound to ask

Didn't find your answer?

If people are now working predominantly from home, does that make home-office mileage an allowable expense?

Certainly as employer I wouldn't be paying mileage claims for home-office travel unless the job would be have been home-based pre-COVID.  But it doesn't mean that people won't be trying it, either as an expense claim or a deduction for personal tax.

What is the collective wisdom?

i would not he happy happy with claims being paid, definitely not recommend employee to claim on tax return.
But trivial in the overall scheme given HMRC are pushing on CJRS overclaims.

My employer is talking about downsizing and having most staff working from home permanently.

Surely if they're working from home there won't be any home to office mileage?

I have now had time to think
If employer requires home working, surely the travel becomes workplace to workplace.
But then workplace 2 (the office) is still a permanent workplace.
Better for employer to just buy some john lewis vouchers released at £50 each periodically
