Summary

Employees may be able to get tax relief on expenses if employers haven’t already reimbursed them. This includes things like:

  • Uniforms and work clothing

  • Buying equipment

  • Professional fees and subscriptions

  • Using their own vehicles for work travel (this does not mean their journey from home to work)

  • Working from home

Anyone can check if they’re eligible to claim on GOV.UK and if they are, they can set up a Government Gateway user ID to access their personal tax account and claim online.

There are companies who will make a claim on an individual’s behalf. Their fees can be up to 50% of the refund and may also include an administration charge.

The benefit of applying to HMRC through GOV.UK is that individuals get to keep all the money they’re entitled to.
