    do you know if there are any restrictions to who can apply? like hours or something? im still at uni so not on a full tax code and only do 10 - 20 hours a week.
    i didnt even know there was such a thing until a lady told me when i was at work the other day!

    My hubby used to claim an allowance for the washing of his uniform, he rang the local tax office & they increased his tax code slightly to take this into a/c

    It must be logo-ed workwear and there should be no laundry available from your employer.If the employer states they have a staff washing machine, the allowance falls.iirc, i get £90 a year on my allowance.

    Dear Inland Revenue

    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 £45 for each year since the above date.


    Yours Faithfully

    There wasn't a form,i wrote a letter to the inspector of taxes and a couple of weeks later there was an adjustment to my coding.
    If you are a trade union member you will likely find your union has already got an agreement in place with the revenue, it will be under fixed expenses.

    I want to claim this for my husband but am unsure which is my local tax office. I know his wages are sorted at a head office somewhere up country. Do I have to find out there address or do I just send it to my local one. Sorry to appear thick.
  • smiley
    Hi snoopy rules. You need to send it to the tax office that deals with your husbands work. You can find this on your husbands P60. There should be a tax office code on there. Then visit www.hmrc.gov.uk/local/ and you can enter the code to get the full address. Hope this helps.

    How much do you think a student nurse should ask for to do bank work on weekends? While shes training though she would be working as a HCA

    And any idea of how much it would be for a full time Nurse once shes qualified?

    I think if you have to buy your own uniform too they give an allowance for that
    Thanx
