    Do you think you're owed tax back? Read the fully researched Uniform Tax Rebate guide.

    If you're successful let us know in this discussion and you may get one of our Uniform Washer forum badges!

    MoneySavers have been reclaiming tax on uniform washing on MoneySavingExpert for over 10 years! That means earlier replies in the discussion were posted some time ago. To see the most recent successes head to the last few pages.


    EDIT : Tax allowance now £60 to £140 per year from April 2008

    See list of what you can claim here > it is not limited to those listed but that is a guide and customs will choose the most suitable catogory based on your job

    Wash your uniform at home ?

    Then write to your tax office and tell them, i got a extra tax allowance and it is backdated 4 years (+current year) which its better than nothing and better in your pocket

    It only costs the price of a stamp so worth a try !

    All you need to do is fill in the blanks and send it to your work's tax office.(thanks to max2002ad)

    RE: Expenses Allowance

    I have been employed at Company Name, Location since (Date of Starting at Employment). I am obliged to launder the uniform, which is supplied to me by the company. I therefore wish to claim an expenses allowance of £xx for each year since the above date.

    Yours Faithfully

  • Surprised at a few nasty replies re cilla. The respectful thing when someone dies is say nice or say nowt. Grieving relatives may be reading

  • You can judge your age by what #cilla means to you. For me its not the singing, its blind date and surprise surprise. Sad news #ripcilla
