    Tax Credit and Pension 8th Jul 18 at 12:29 PM
    Hello there!
    Hope you're fine!
    I'm now updating my tax credit award and the HMRC letter says I can make deductions from my income because I have a non net pay pension arrangement.
    Iíve been searching online to try to know how a non net pay pension affect the way in which I have to work out my income for a tax credit declaration, but the searching has been unsuccessful.
    My pension plan is from Nest, it is an automatic pension I received straight away from my employer after I started to work for them.
    I also spent on uniforms I exclusively use when I work, I kept the receipts, but I read somewhere those spends are subject to tax payments, and I donít know how to work that out.
    Any information on both matters will be kindly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    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?
