yes, agreed - very valid point - I too had assumed that this was an HMRC relief claim, and that the OP already knew the difference.

sorry only just picked up on this - I agree with Hugo- the tax position and treatment of the employer would be independent of the employee.

if you have any joy let me know - same problem for 2 years now!

I would work on the basis that the individual could only get tax relief on £6 p/week (currently), as it is based on a rate for working from home by the week - so would potentially need apportioning between time spent on each employment. Anything more would, imo, be considered above the pre approved HMRC rate.

Sorry to hear you're struggling - Accounting is tough path in normal times let alone in this pandemic. Everyone is finding it tough after 15 months of disruptions - I have been in the profession for 20 + years, and I know it doesn't get easier - but the rewards later offset the churn at the beginning - its a right of passage.
At the risk of sounding 'woke' you might find it helpful to talk to someone who can help you process the change you are struggling with - the media tell us that working from home is the new normal and it should be celebrated, unfortunately this style doesn't suit everyone.
Also, you can speak to the AAT about some resilience and career coaching - it might help you reframe your frustration or assist with making your decision.
Most of the people on this site will be at different places in their careers, but all of us are having to adapt to the unknown - at the moment everyone is having a rotten time - what we can rely upon is that in accountancy we have had a rotten time before, and will probably all have a rotten time again - but that comes with the job.
until you have managed to channel your current frustration, or at least process it in a useful manner, you're not going to make any progress on this though I suspect that you have already made your choice about accountancy, just not come to terms with it.
Electricians are in demand and well paid for a trade - but you'll still have to deal with the old boys telling you what to do in order to get your part P.

having a similar problem - seems to be due to bank's covid response closing branches - they will sign up a new company with one director online, anything beyond that needs a face to face meeting, all AML connected.
I've continually been told by the banks that the end of June will solve all problems. Tried with Barclays, Santander and Metro. The response has been universally the same - as Paul says, maybe their French bank will be able assist in organising a UK account.

I agree with this comment, i have Ultrawide at home and 2 screens in office, and win 10 (unsure about mac) seems to play best with the dual screens.

I cant really help with the problem you are having because I gave up with LLP accounts in Taxfiler, chasing similar problems.
From memory issue was down to not being able to handle the division of profits after the balance sheet date. It seemed that it could not account for the idea of carrying forward profits (i.e. distribution in the following year). My issue came when preparing the second year as well.
I spent a while with Taxfiler support trying to get an answer - just never happened. your best bet is to email their support - they have an LLP accounts team.
The template, from what I gathered, was a work in progress and only fitted a limited number of scenarios, specifically the automatic distribution of profits at the year end (it looks like its based more on the partnership accounts than the Ltd co accounts) - I ended up doing the accounts outside of tax filer - I couldn't rely on the software to get it right.
Its probably not you, its probably a limitation of the software. I hope that helps a little.
