Tax relief of up to 40% may be available to you or your relatives which can substantially reduce the cost of care. Relief may be claimed by the person(s) paying for care at their marginal rate of tax (20% or 40%).If the cost of home care is being paid for by more than one person it is possible to divide the tax relief between the contributors. Tax relief can also be claimed as part of 'tax credits' which allows the benefit to be received as part of either your weekly or monthly salary. Care at Home can assist our client’s in claiming this relief.
