What our customers think

Each tax year will be recalculated if you enter a claim. This often identifies other overpayments due to incorrect tax codes, multiple employments, ceasing of job, etc. In these cases we can identify a much larger tax rebate. We regularly identify rebates of over £1,000 for customers who were originally estimated a lower amount.

If you claim now you will receive tax relief for the current tax year and future years that allowances continue to apply, paid through your monthly pay. The value of this is usually £{{ App.CustomerClaim.AnnualRefund }} per year.

You don’t need to make any upfront payment to us in order for us to check if you are due a rebate.

We will ensure that your current year reliefs are correct and that your future year allowances are adjusted in line with the current year to ensure you are no longer being overtaxed. There will be no charge for this service.

The annual saving of £{{ App.CustomerClaim.AnnualRefund }} per year for the current and future years will not be subject to charge. You will receive this automatically in your pay once your tax code has been adjusted.

We will also check the earlier years to determine if you can claim back any previously overpaid tax. HMRC will pay any rebate due directly to us and we will forward payment to you, in due course, net of our deductions of 28%, plus VAT, where due, providing the net refund payment is £20 or more.

We will issue your refund through our Uniform Benefits payment card which you can withdraw cash on at a cashpoint or spend in shops or online like a normal debit card. If you use your card at selected retailers you can also earn additional cashback to continue to spend.

What our customers are saying

Uniform Tax Rebate, do you qualify?


If you wear a uniform at work and you launder it at home or you pay for it to be laundered yourself you can claim an allowance from HMRC (Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs) against the tax you pay on your earnings.

One of the most common questions about this allowance is, “do I qualify?” Here is some simple guidance which will explain what qualifies as a uniform for tax purposes and what doesn’t.


Can I claim a uniform tax rebate?

You may be able to claim tax back on your uniform if you fulfil any of the following:

  1. You wear a clearly distinguishable uniform

If you wear a uniform which makes it obvious to everyone the job that you are doing, you can claim. If you wear a uniform like this the uniform DOESN’T need a logo.

  1. Your uniform protects you while you’re doing your job

If your uniform protects you in the course of your duties you can claim an allowance for its upkeep, if you have to wash it at home.

  1. Your uniform has a logo

Having a permanent logo on your uniform makes your work clothes a uniform for tax purposes. This is applicable whether your uniform is a full outfit or a simple polo shirt or T-shirt. Clipping a detachable logo badge to otherwise ordinary clothes does not however, make those clothes a uniform.


Am I eligible for a rebate if I don’t have to wear this uniform all of the time?

What’s important is your responsibility to keep the uniform presentable. Not having to wear your uniform at all times shouldn’t stop you claiming as there is a flat rate allowance for laundry which you can get regardless of the actual cost.


What doesn't qualify?

It’s also worthwhile stating what doesn’t qualify. Here are the most common examples:

  1. You wear your own clothes

Yes, you have to wash your clothes the same as everyone else and buy them. We know it’s unfair but you can only claim in line with HMRC’s rules.

  1. Your employer has a dress code

You have to wear a suit, smart attire or the same colour, unfortunately all of these are classed by HMRC as ordinary clothes, so you can’t claim unless they have permanent logos.

  1. You have to buy clothes from the shop you work in to wear at work

Some retail clothes chains require employees to buy the clothes on sale in the store to wear when selling those clothes. HMRC has already looked at these cases and unfortunately decided that they don’t qualify.

  1. Your employer provides a laundry service but you don’t use it

As long as your employer provides laundry services you can’t claim, even if the service is no good, you have an allergy to the detergent or it’s just more convenient for you to wash at home.


How to claim

If you’ve read the guidance and you qualify it’s now really easy for you to put in a Uniform Tax Rebate claim. Just click on the box below and enter your details to claim.
