    This should help for the pension,

    Not enough info about the uniform. If it is a genuine (logo'd) uniform then why did you have to buy it. Normally an employer provides a uniform.

    Thanks for the reply.

    My uniforms do not have logos, I buy them from a high street shop.

    I read the pdf but no clue yet, the matter is I don't know how to deduct my Nest pension from my Income when declaring it for tax credit.

    Clothing from high street with no work logos/permanent badges added aren't a uniform. They are just clothes just the same as millions of people need to buy for work. You could if you want to wear these clothes out with work.

    A uniform in this context means a set of clothing of a specialised nature that is recognisable as a uniform and is intended to identify its wearer as having a particular occupation.

    Why does the pdf not help? Does this help make it clearer? https://revenuebenefits.org.uk/tax-credits/guidance/how-do-tax-credits-work/what-is-income/calculating-tax-credits-income/
