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.
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 , opens an external URL in a new window from INTRANET at the following link www.tuwien.at/arbeitsrecht, opens an external URL in a new window (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.
