Am I entitled to a Working Clothes Tax Rebate?

If you wear a uniform or protective clothing to work and have to wash your work clothes at home or at a laundrette, without your employer contributing to the costs, then you are entitled to a tax rebate for the money you have spent laundering your own uniform.

We help thousands of employees claim money back every month – so if you want to claim tax relief for washing your work clothes – then complete our online application today. If you want to find out more information then drop us an email, or connect with us on Facebook.

The amount you will receive will vary depending on what industry you work in, as well as how many years you have been wearing a uniform. The average pay out is £155, but we have helped clients claim rebates of over £1,000.

If you still have to wear a uniform at work, and wash it yourself – then we can also ensure you pay less income tax each month by placing you on the correct tax code that takes into account your laundry costs. Some industries and job roles have a higher tax relief rate, allowing you to claim even more money!!!
