Do you work in the Gambling Industry? What tax rebates are you missing out on?
If you work in the gambling industry you may be able to get tax refund on some of your work related expenses.
You are entitled to claim the tax back for the laundry of your work uniform. Tax rebates are based on the highest rate of tax you pay which is either 20% or 40%, normally totaling £12 or £24, per tax year. As this can be backdated for up to four years, this works out between £48 and £96 in total per claim.
Personal function licences
The gambling commission requires casino employees to hold a Personal Functional Licence (P.F.L.) to do work involving gaming or handling cash in relation to gaming. If you are a gaming supervisor, pit boss, cashier, inspector or security and surveillance staff in a casino you need a P.F.L. These licences cost £185.00 per year. If you have to cover this substantial cost yourself, you are entitled to claim tax back. The average amount is between £37 and £74 per licence.
Security industry authority licence
Different jobs within the industry require an employee to hold a Security Industry Authority Licence. For example, door supervisors, CCTV operators, security guards and cash handlers all need to be registered with the S.I.A. The average tax back on this expense is between £44 and £88 per registration. There is no need to root out old bank statements for the registration cost rates as we can do this for you.
Depending on your job specification, you may actually need more than one S.I.A. licence. You may need to purchase extra licences for close protection, security guarding, cash and valuables in transit, door supervision, public space supervision and security or manned guarding. We are able to claim a tax rebate for each of these licences individually, which could amount to between £264 and £528 going back over four years.
I don’t keep receipts!
You can make a successful claim without a trail of carefully filed receipts. All we need is a list of the things you have bought with approximate costings for each year.
Sometimes HMRC have rejected some tax rebate claims because there were no receipts as evidence. But any claims that were incorrectly rejected were successfully challenged and compensation was received by the client. So, if your claim is rejected on these grounds, we can fight this on your behalf.
Do I have to remember to go through this process every year?
When you have made a successful claim you should then automatically receive the allowance in your pay. The only time you may need to check your status and make another claim is if the cost of licences change.
