Tax Relief for Washing of Uniform
On this page you will find information about:
What am I actually claiming back?
HMRC has many allowances which are used to offset job related expenses, for example washing of uniform.
The allowances are called Flat Rate Expenses and are used to adjust your tax code, so you will pay less tax because your tax code has been increased in line with the Flat Rate Expense.
How much will I get from a Uniform Tax Relief claim?
The amount of uniform tax relief you can claim depends on the kind of work you do. The standard amount is £60 per tax year. In some industries, like aviation, workers can claim more uniform tax relief. You can only claim uniform tax relief during the tax years that you have paid tax.
Can I claim for any other Tax Relief?
Many trades and professions have higher Flat Rate Expense allowances. It is worth checking if your trade or profession has a higher FRE Allowance because that means you are owed a larger tax refund.
Similarly, other tax reliefs can be claimed. For example, paying membership into a professional body, buying tools for work or using your own car for work purposes. You can claim for these different kinds of tax relief when you make a claim for uniform tax relief for washing your uniform.
