    Wash your uniform at home ?

    Then write to your tax office and tell them, i got a extra tax allowance and it is backdated 6 years which its better than nothing and better in your pocket

    It only costs the price of a stamp so worth a try !

    All you need to do is fill in the blanks and send it to your work's tax office...............

    Dear Inland Revenue

    RE: Expenses Allowance

    I have been employed at Company Name, Location since (Date of Starting at Employment). I am obliged to launder the uniform, which is supplied to me by the company. I therefore wish to claim an expenses allowance of £xx for each year since the above date (if unsure just dont mention an amount they will work it out for you).


    Yours Faithfully

    Thank you very much. Expect the expected, people will start saying it is not a deal. I think it is well worth to be on this section.

    Just wondering, I have to wear suits every day for work, obviously financed by myself, is there any way I can claim for this back.

    Also, these suits require dry cleaning, again at my expense, is this something that I could reclaim ???

    Dry cleaning is a lot more expensive than cleaning at home so I thought I'd ask, someone on here is bound to know.

    I just figured if you can claim back for washing at home there must be some way of claiming for dry cleaning.

    My GF works for a distribution company, she works in the finance office and the top she wears has the company logo...DHL...can she claim? I can't see a relevant category on the hmrc site,

    As far as im aware it only applies to clothes provided by your firm, suits etc can be used for any purpose so are not eligible

    Saw this ages ago, never bothered before but worth a go I guess. How much do you claim for?

    have had a laundry allowance in my last three employments going back around 18 years.
    There is possibly an allowance for footwear when your employer requires a certain type to be worn that does not constitute a safety Boot/shoe and is supplied by yourself. I ahve struggled to get the detiails on this the tax people seem very vague and were obstructive to my enquiries to say the least. If anyone has any details on that I'd be interested.

    By the way this is not a deal!

    But it is a useful post so I'll put my heat in.
