Do you have to wear a recognises Uniform to work eg, branded supermarket uniform, Nurses Uniform or other Company Logo branded clothing.
If so you could claim up to £100+ per year of HMRC. (depending on your job)
Costs covered include if you have to launder / wash , repair them yourself.
As a general rule an employee can't get tax relief for the cost of clothing they wear to work - but there are some exceptions. For example, if you work in a sector like the building trade or the metal working industry you'll have to wear protective clothing like:
If you must pay for the cost of repairing, cleaning or replacing this type of specialist clothing yourself and your employer doesn't reimburse you, then you are entitled to tax relief. However, you cannot claim for the initial cost of buying this clothing
You may also be able to claim for some tools for example hairdressers may be able to claim tax relief on scissors etc. this is includespurchase and maintenance.
See HMRC website for full dtails of who is eligible, what you claim for and the amount.
This is an Annual process as opposed to a one off.
Good luck. If anyone fancies posting if they manage to get anything feel free. It may be only a little bit but if everyone who is entitled to claim does, well that's a fair bit reclaimed.
Don't forget business milage :) Claim up to 45p per mile of un-expensed mileage. eg if you company pay you 20p per mile, you can claim the extra 25p per mile (up to 10,000) against tax. Winner!
