    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

    Dear Inland Revenue

    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
