If you work remotely, do your company pay for stuff like computer / desk / chair / internet access / office locally where you live? Is there a set allowance, or do you expense it? If you do have a kit allowance, is it “means tested” based on your country of residence? (I seem to remember someone—Trello? StackOverflow?—giving a flat USD5,000 allowance for kit, but I cannot find a reference for that now.)
I invoiced for my computer, and for travel to/from head office. (Obviously.) But I rent a separate office as I don’t have a suitable office space for full-time work from home (yet) and haven’t invoiced for that yet. (The rented office comes furnished, heated, with kitchen facilities and with fairly good internet connectivity.) When I first started I did not yet have internet connection at home, so renting this office was necessary for me to be able to commence working for them.
Now my home line is probably good enough—we had a fault on the line for a while, but it has been corrected now. However, I think I work better and with less distractions from this dedicated rented office than from home. I would like to continue, but it’s hard to justify the personal cost. Wondering what other people in similar situations do.
