Rebate

icon-uniform

Work Uniform

Work uniforms can include one item such as an apron or t-shirt or a full uniform such as overalls, and other clothing displaying the name of the company or company branding/logo. You are entitled to claim a tax rebate for washing these items, provided that your employer does not offer facilities to wash your uniform at the work place or pays you for doing this maintenance.

icon-fees

Union Fees & Memberships

Periodic payments or fees to your professional body/union may be tax deductible which means you can claim back a portion of these fees as a tax refund. Thousands of professional bodies/unions in the UK qualify for a tax rebate, provided they are approved by the tax office and form part of their approved list.

icon-mileage

Expenses & Mileage

Purchasing, repairing or replacing small tools you need to carry out your job may be tax deductible and may be eligible for a refund. You can also claim a tax rebate on repairing or replacing specialist clothing such as safety boots. If you use your own vehicle for business/work reasons you can claim ‘Mileage Allowance Relief’ as well as parking fees. Accommodation and incurred meal costs whilst travelling for business may also be tax deductible depending on the nature of the expense.

icon-claim

How much can I claim back?

The amount you're able to claim tax relief on depends on several factors so get in touch and let us do the work for you.
