That if you have a uniform at work you can claim back £200 tax for washing it??

If so anyone know what form you need?

you can claim i think it is upto £50 per year and upto six years back
#2
I think you can, but there's some weird regulation where the uniform has to have a company logo on it, to sort of "prove" it's not just normal clothing I suppose.

Looks like you do it through an amendment to your tax code and a letter to the tax office is required:

Tax Code XXXX

I am writing in order to have my tax code amended to take into account my expenditure on washing the Company Uniform with logo’s worn in my current post as a XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.

I would like to claim retrospectively for the maximum period, which I believe to be 6 years, and have enclosed the latest copy of my P60.

I think you will find that if your company is claiming they clean them you cannot claim you clean it yourself.

If the company is claiming they clean them but you actually clean them yourself then isn't that more of a reason to claim ?
#19
Years ago i used to claim this tax back as my uniform had a logo on. I still wear a uniform with a logo but had forgotton all about this so i'd be interested to know how you go about it too :)

i will have to look into this, my uniform has a logo on.

What I was trying to say was that if your company offers to clean them, you cannot claim that you do.

I have two younger brothers one of whom works in a cinema and the other who works in a coffee shop. Both have worked in their jobs for about 5 years and both wear uniforms (with logos).

Would they qualify and is this money paid back retroactively (for the past unclaimed years)?
Would amending your tax code mean needing to supply a new one to your place of work?
Is their a site that gives info on the types of jobs that qualify and the amount that you can claim for that job?

[COLOR="red"]If you wear a uniform and your company does not offer to clean it then you are eligible. It is not dependant on the type of job. I beleive the amount you can claim is set and not variable.[/COLOR]

Just phone up your tax office, I done this about a year back, no forms to fill. They amend your tax code thats all.

The IRS recognizes that in some occupations, money must be spent in order to perform the work according to normal expectations and standards. A police officer can deduct the cost of his haircuts, for example.

Just got a response to my retrospective claim.

My tax code has been amended by £135 to reflect three years of uniform washing at £45 per year! Makes me wish I still wore the dreadful thing!

I have been advised the rebate will show once my employer updates the code:-D

Actually - make that £135 TAX FREE - rebate works out at around £30. Still worth the price of a stamp though.
