Did you know that you can claim money back on the overall cost of your uniform including maintenance? If you did good on you, but have you claimed the money back yet? If you haven’t heard about this before then it might come to a shock to you because I bet you thought that money was long gone and it would never be returned am I right? With uniform tax rebate you can!
What I will be covering in this post is a guide on how you can claim tax relief on your uniform expenditure for work.
How does this process work?
For this process to work you will need to have a job that involves you to purchase and maintain your own work uniform. The uniform has to be related for the job role and not your normal clothes! How uniform tax rebate works is by calculating your annual pay and allowing you to claim back 20% of through tax relief and this allowance is sent by cheque through the post.
How can you claim?
It is very simple, you need to be working for a company for at least a year and you are required to have a uniform for this allowance to work. You have to remember that you can’t claim any money on your own clothes that you chose to wear to work. All you have to do is go online type in uniform tax rebate in a search engine and click the website most relevant. Then simply fill out a little bit of information and then you will receive a cheque through the post with the amount of money you were allowed to claim! Simple.
