I am a monthly salaried employee and my employer deducts PAYE. However, my salary is based on an hourly rate with no fixed base, i. E. No work, no pay, and varies from month-to-month. I work 100% from home and am responsible for all work-related expenses. Can I claim a percentage of my rates and taxes, electricity and telephone?
