Tax relief, documentation and more information on home office, the agreement and FAQ.

On 25.3.2021, the National Council passed legal regulations on home office. These regulations will come into force on 1.4.2021.

The TU Vienna has already adopted a comprehensive guideline for working in a home office on 22.9.2020, which already includes many of these legal regulations. Currently, a few points are still being adapted to the legal requirements.

Tax relief

The home office regulations have also created tax relief: Starting in the 2021 assessment year, flat-rate income-related expenses can be deducted per workday in the home office.

If you already need a certificate for 2020 on the number of home office working days for submission to the tax office, you can download a sample certificate from INTRANET at the following link www.tuwien.at/arbeitsrecht (Homeoffice).

Please note that from 1.4.2021 an exact documentation of the home office days is required and therefore a certificate will no longer be sufficient.
