New Quick Poll: The homeworking allowance

20 October 2020

As coronavirus has resulted in a significant increase to the number of employees who are working from home, the CIPP’s Policy and research team want to explore whether individuals are receiving the homeworking allowance, and if they are, the way in which this is being administered.

The team has added a new question to the CIPP’s News Online page and would be very interested in hearing from you. We realise that payroll professionals are extremely busy at this point in time, particularly given recent Government announcements regarding new measures, but the Quick Poll will take less than a minute to complete, and is your opportunity to feed into research relating to payroll and policies that are currently in place.

The question asks: “how have you benefitted from the homeworking allowance?”

In addition to assessing how many individuals are actually benefitting from the allowance, we also want to gauge how this is being provided, so are employers administering this for their staff, or are people claiming the relief themselves, either at year end, or via the online portal at Gov.UK?

Don’t miss the opportunity to have your say, and respond to the Quick Poll today!
