Uniform workers are entitled to claim tax refunds on certain work related expenses in addition to claiming a tax rebate on the cost of washing their work uniform (if applicable). Uniform workers can also claim a tax rebate on fees paid to certain unions and professional bodies. 


Work Uniform

Uniforms include ‘recognisable uniforms’ e.g. a lab coat and ‘company branded uniforms’ e.g. a polo shirt and/or fleece displaying the name of the company. Provided that your employer does not provide on-site facilities to wash your uniform, you are entitled to claim a tax rebate for your uniform washing allowance.

Union Fees & Memberships

Monthly/yearly contributions to your union/professional body may be tax deductible which means you can claim back a portion of your fees as a tax refund. There are thousands of unions/professional bodies in the UK that qualify for a tax rebate, provided they are approved by the tax office and form part of their ‘List 3’.
