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.

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 calculated for amending your current tax code and you will receive any tax refunds due in the current year and in future years directly.

If you are due a refund in the 4 previous tax years we will receive that refund from HMRC on your behalf and deduct charges in accordance with those quoted on the website prior to making a payment to you.

Standard deduction is 28% + £20, plus VAT, where due on any refund payment HMRC send us before passing payment on to you, subject to a net minimum refund of £20. In explanation, if the refund net of our charges and VAT is less than £20 we will make an additional supplementary charge up to but not exceeding £19.99, inclusive of VAT where due, to cover any amount below £20.

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.

Your Claim

I'm sorry this is a one off process. When you claim the first time any relief is added to your tax code which means you continue to benefit from it as long as you continue your job.

Because you have stated that you have previously made a claim before through us, with HMRC directly or with another company we cannot continue with your new claim.

Security Worker Tax Rebate

If you work in security and wash your own uniform, you may be eligible to claim tax back on the cost. You may also be able to get a tax refund on the cost of specialist equipment that you purchase yourself, such as jackets or shoes. You can also claim for the cost of your Security Industry Authority (SIA) licences.

What can I claim for?

As touched upon, as a security guard you may be able to claim against the cost of washing your own uniform, any equipment that you have purchased yourself and your SIA licence. As you may be required to purchase several different types of SIA licence, you are able to claim tax back on each of these.

Rebates will not cover the cost of training to become a security guard, however, you may be able to claim if you need to pay for certain mandatory training during the course of a job.

How much can I claim?

You can claim tax back against the flat rate for uniform maintenance which is £60. If you are in the lower tax band you can claim 20% back, which equates to £12 per year and if you are in the lower tax bracket you can claim 40%, which equates to £24 per year.

For equipment, you can claim 20% or 40% of the cost – you just need to state what was purchased and at what price. Receipts are not essential and in the rare cases that HMRC have rejected claims we have successfully fought to have these overturned.

In terms of SIA registration, you can also claim tax back on this, which normally comes to either £44 of £88 – you can claim on each SIA licence you buy.

Claims can be backdated by up to 4 years, which means that you may be able to claim back a large amount of money!

Am I eligible to claim?

If you’re not sure if what you wear to work counts as a uniform, we’ve broken done exactly what does and doesn’t qualify as uniform.

security worker tax rebate examples

John works the front door at one of the busiest clubs in the city’s centre. He found out about the uniform rebate online and saw an opportunity to receive some extra money to spend on his small children.

“Someone had shared a post about the uniform rebate on Facebook, and I took a few minutes to read about it and apply,” he explains. In total, John received around £400, which arrived in just a few weeks. He spent the rebate on his young children, and the money was particularly useful given that his family was set to expand. “I was due a baby at the time, so when I came into £400 through the rebate, it really was perfect timing!”
