    Did you know your staff are entitled to a uniform allowance as long as they do their own uniform washing and it is a uniform with an embroidered logo.

    It is worth about £45 a year and can be backdated.

    Hope this helps someone, is there a Tax section on this site??

    How does this work, if you don't mind me asking?

    I run a computer outlet, and me and my two employees all wear polo shirts and sweaters all embroided.

    Does this mean we are missing out on something? I'm a director and draw £445 per month to use my personal allowance, and my two employees both earn between £500 &£1000 per month. Our payroll is done by a bueru can they do initiate this tax saving or does each employee need to individually approach the tax office.

    I'll get the template I read it on another site and have helped out my friends and family, you write individually to your local tax office and they amend your Tax code

    RE: Expenses Allowance

    I have been employed at Company Name, Location since (Date of Starting at Employment). I am obliged to launder the uniform, which is supplied to me by the company. I therefore wish to claim an expenses allowance of £45 for each year since the above date.


    Yours Faithfully
