As a tradesman's tax refund company, claiming the tax back on workwear and uniforms is just a part of what we do.
HMRC have certain criteria when it comes to tax claims on uniforms. Money Saving Expert sets it out:
- You wear a recognisable uniform that shows you've got a certain job, like a branded T-shirt or police uniform. Also, we've heard reports that even plain clothes, without a logo, that you only wear for work may count - it's worth a try.
- Your employer requires you to wear it while you're working.
- You have to pay to clean, repair or replace it yourself. However, you can't claim if your employer washes your kit, provides facilities to do so (even if you don't use them) or pays you for doing this maintenance.
- You paid income tax in the year you are claiming for.
As always, do call us if you need any help and advice.
