What is an e-worker?

This is where an employee;

  • Works from home full or part time
  • Works on the move, with visits to normal place of work

What is e-working?

This is where your work involves;

  • Working for substantial periods outside normal place of work
  • Working remotely and logging on to work computer
  • Sending & receiving emails & data remotely

An employer can provide any of the following to an e-worker for business use;

  • Computer/laptop
  • Printer/Scanner
  • Phone/Mobile/Broadband
  • Office Furniture

This is not classed as benefit in kind. A payment of €3.20 can be made to the employee per day without deducting PAYE/PRSI or USC. This payment is to cover utilities such as light & heat.

If utilities are higher than this, they can be claimed as expenses once receipts are provided by the employee
