Martin Lewis: Working from home due to coronavirus, even for a day? Claim a year's worth of tax relief

Martin Lewis: A glimmer of hope for excluded new-starter self-employed

In March, at the start of the coronavirus pandemic, the Chancellor was rightly lauded for putting together decades' worth of financial support measures in days.

Martin Lewis: My Coronavirus Fund – £3.4m donated to 415 charities – how we selected, who got it, and some thanks

We've just agreed the final payments for my Coronavirus Poverty Emergency Fund. The total distributed is £3,414,143 to 415 small local charities (or organisations with charitable status).

I hope this may also help others planning similar things in future.
