What our customers are saying
There is one thing that most key workers have in common. Healthcare, retail, postal, industrial; whichever sector they typically wear a uniform.
The government has long recognised the costs of washing your uniform in the tax system. Unfortunately most uniformed workers are not currently getting what's due to them as reported in the Daily Express. Only 30% of eligible applicants have the allowance in their tax code.
Are you eligible? The basic criteria are:
- You have to wear a uniform at work
- It needs to be a recognisable work uniform (a branded T-shirt with your employer's name is enough)
- Hi-viz and overalls are also eligible, even without logos
- You have to wash it yourself
- You can backdate it for up to 5 years
- You can claim it for past jobs, even if you have left now
Right now key workers are on the front line delivering important goods and services. As clothing can spread infection those at risk should be following health guidance on the laundry of uniforms which will incur more cost. As such you should be sure to claim the tax allowances due for those costs.
Uniform Tax Rebate have already claimed refunds for over 500,000 UK taxpayers and we can help you claim too. If you have been in the job for more than 4 years you need to claim now to avoid missing out as any benefit is lost after 4 years.
