Automated solution for the work from home tax deduction

January 26, 2021 BDO CANADA

Many Canadians worked from home last year, potentially making them eligible to claim the work from home tax deduction for 2020. Employers will need to provide a completed and signed Form T2200S (or Form T2200) to their employees if they choose to claim the deduction using the detailed method. Completing the Form T2200S requires a significant amount of resources and time, which is compounded when many employees worked from home in 2020 and are eligible to claim the home office expense deduction. 

BDO Canada is helping companies complete the Form T2200S with extreme precision and speed through a technology-enabled automated process. While our full-service approach considers your employees as well, we also created a comprehensive guide to help educate your employees on how to claim the home office expense deduction for the 2020 taxation year.

Contact us for more information on how we can help you save time in completing the Form T2200S and educate your employees on the home office expense deduction.
