T2200s Covid 19 Canada 

Hassle-free implementation of the T2200S form in your system


The novel Covid-19 pandemic has unexpectedly shifted millions of Canadians to work from home in 2020, setting up their workspace in their living rooms, bedrooms and kitchens. 

To help overcome the expenses, on 15th December 2020, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) released detailed guidance on the home office expense deduction that employees can claim on their 2020 personal income tax return.

How to claim?

For 2020, there will be two alternate methods by which employees may be able to claim home office expenses: 

The new “temporary flat rate method” provides a deduction of CA $2 per workday at home (to a maximum of $400). 
The “detailed method” is similar to the existing deduction for home office expenses, except that the category of eligible expenses has been expanded to include home internet access fees. This is where T2200 or T2200S is required. 

T2200s and T2200 

Form T2200S, Declaration of Conditions of Employment for working at Home during COVID-19, is a shorter version of Form T2200 that the employer complete and sign if the employee worked from home in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and is not using the temporary flat rate method. The employer completes and signs this form to certify that the employee worked from home in 2020 due to COVID-19 and had to pay their own some/all home office expenses. 

Eligibility for detailed method 

The employee worked from home in 2020 either because it was required or by choice, due to the COVID-19 pandemic  
Employee incurred expenses related to the workspace in your home  
Employee’s workspace is where they mainly work (more than 50% of the time for at least four consecutive weeks), or they only use their workspace to earn employment income, also using it regularly for meetings
Their expenses are used directly in your work
An employee has a completed and signed copy of either the Form T2200S or Form T2200 from the employer
