We have recently had a number of clients come into the office with letters from a company called Uniform Tax Rebates. This is a company which asks if you wear a uniform for work and launder it yourself, or whether you provide your own protective clothing or your own tools. These types of expenses are allowable for some employees and the company offers to make the claim for you on a no win no fee basis with the refund going to them with fees of a flat rate £12 per claim plus 24% of any refund. They also offer a discount scheme to save on purchase from various high street stores if you sign up.
Obviously we want to maximise any tax savings available to our clients and we do claim for various expenses for our employed clients whenever justified and this is part of our normal service therefore if you do receive a letter regarding Uniform Benefits, and are in any doubt, please contact us.
