my daughter works in a designer shop and has to wear their items - ok she gets a 50% discount but still expensive
I harangued her into claiming - dont care if its £12 a year - if MPs have the audacity to claim 30p for a pint of milk - we can claim this -

If i just wear non work branded shirts and trousers which i have to wash myself can i claim for this? Technically as they aren't branded with a work logo i can wear them outside of work

Unless its a specific uniform that cannot be worn outside of work, then no, you shouldn't/couldn't claim.

i've been doing this for years

you can only claim if your company issues you with a "uniform" be it coveralls to polo shirts etc. We all do it - they just add an extra amount to your tax code

Can you do this for previous years?
If so do you need to do a form for each year?

Also what happens if you can changed employers since can you still claim?

can someone tell me how much they've claimed back?

Do you need to fill in a form for each year?

Expenses are not just restricted to cleaning. Everyone who works should be aware of HMRC's web page "EIM32712 - Other expenses: flat rate expenses: table of agreed amounts" (Section 367 ITEPA 2003)

Nurses & other health care professionals should look at "EIM67240 - Tax treatment of nurses: expenses deductions: laundering uniforms: amount to be deducted"
Claims are usually by letter or via a tax claim form. You can go back 4 years. Once claimed an adjustment is given via your code number & carried forward to later years.

Nice spot thanks OP

I've worked in retail between 2005 and 2014. How many years can I claim back?

As a nurse we can also claim tights and shoes allowance as well. Once you have claimed your tax code gets amended accordingly. There are RCN and Unison forms for this as well which can be sent to HMRC once completed

Cheers

how old do you have to be

When you go to link and open the form, it only allows you to claim from Apr 2012. So in your case you can claim anything from 1yr 9mths-2yrs depending on the month you finished.
So for e.g. if you finished in 5th Jan 2014 then it is 1yr 9mths if you finished in Apr 2014 then it will be 2yrs.

My partner claimed for 3 years, got cheque yesterday for..... £10!

Gonna tell my dad bout this

You can claim back 4 years i think, and you don't normally get money in your hand ....
It's a change in your tax allowance so your tax code changes - usually about £30 a year?

not exactly a "new deal"

I did this a couple of years ago when I had a uniform. I got about £40 which I was well pleased with - money I didn't know I was going to get, in my pocket rather than the tax man.

the form is so confusing, under what rebate does this come under?

why are only 16% workers claiming this


Because I'd feel really petty claiming some money for not being a skank

Why not claim?

Dont you have to claim at the end of the tax year or can you apply whenever? I'm only asking because they need to see how much tax you've paid before they calculate what they owe?

Over 16 I think, as long as your working and have a National Insurance number.

You can claim at any point in the year, and they can go back i think it's about 5 years (depends on how long you have been doing this job), just looking at my tax code and i get £60 a year tax allowance extra.

I used to work for the Inland Revenue and had a colleague who always mentioned, with a leer, when he had a nurse putting in a claim for their stockings.

And if you are self employed? can you still claim

if you are doing your books correctly or have an accountant you would know all what to claim for

if you only have to wear a branded tie...how much would the claim be for??!

Thanks op for putting this up my hubbie had a letter from a company asking for us to use them to claim, I thought I could do it ourselves, then I forgot about it. Thanks. ☺️

Hubby works at Nissan. His is £60 a year.

£60.

Just to be clear, you get an extra tax free allowance on your salary, right? I just started a new job around a month ago which requires me to wear company uniform, should I apply for this now or after a few months?

Apologies for my ignorance, I'm a newbie at this.

How much is should me claimed? say uniform washed every week for 5 days in a year at home working in an exceedingly goood bakery?

What shall I put on put p87 in sention 4?

on my calculations it is 5*50=250 days @ £2= $500

Is it adequate?

How much you have claimed?

Thanks

The standard minimum amount you can claim is £60 per year, unless you can prove the costs you incur for cleaning uniform is higher than that.
