PAYE and Self-Assessment

For the last five years or so I have been delighted to let my employer deal with my Income Tax through PAYE. It's certainly been more pleasant than having to do it all myself.
However, since I work from home a couple of days each week, using my own computer, Internet connection, heating, electricity and so on, I wondered if it would be worthwhile to try to claim some of that back.
So how would that work? How do I make a tax return if my employer is also calculating and paying my tax for me?
I checked my old Inland Revenue login for making a tax return, and that still works.
For my partner, it seems even more sensible to do this - she works for the Open University, and nearly all of her work is from home.

This is fairly normal. Anyone on higher rate is almost certainly going to have to do it, unless they have absolutely no investment income.
HMRC would probably be a lot happier if your employer dealt with that as well.

If you are employed, ie not self-employed, you cannot claim expenses against tax even if you work at home.

That doesn't seem to be the case. According to:

"f you have to work from home you can get tax relief for the extra household expenses that you have to pay."
However, if you *volunteer* to work from home, you can't.
So I don't think I can, but my partner ought to.
