If you work for the NHS you could be owed a tax rebate to help cover the cost of your work related expenses.
You can make a claim for the last four years and pay less tax in the future too.
It doesn’t matter what your job title is, we’ve helped Nurses, porters, care workers – the list is endless. Find out today what you can claim for and don’t miss out on the money you’re owed.
What can I claim an NHS tax rebate for?
Working for the NHS usually means you will have to meet the cost of washing your own uniform.
If you have clothes with an NHS logo and you do not receive any laundering facilities from your employer, you should be able to claim a uniform tax rebate. Usually, laundry costs are given at a flat rate of £100 annually depending on your job title.
Membership of professional bodies and unions
If you have paid for membership to a professional body such as the Nursing Midwifery Council (NMC) and your employer has not reimbursed this cost, you can claim for tax relief on your professional fees. Some NHS employees can claim for union fees for example UNISON. Tax relief cannot be claimed for all professional bodies and unions.
Any journeys made for work purposes, apart from commuting, are regarded as business miles. This may include journeys from your main workplace to a clinic, or to a client’s home.
Depending on the amount paid to you as a mileage allowance from the NHS an additional claim for tax relief is often possible. You can claim .45p per mile for each business mile up to 10,000 miles. So, if your employer gives you less than 45 pence per mile, or your mileage is taxed in full you can claim for a tax rebate. It is useful to have a record of such journeys when making a claim, but even if you do not have these details, you may still be granted a tax rebate.
Work equipment and tools
If you have had to buy specialist equipment for your work and you have not received any reimbursement by the NHS, you may be able to claim expenses against the tax on these. Tax rebates can be given for books, laptops, stethoscopes and many other work related tools, if they are used solely for work purposes. You will need proof of purchase for a claim to be allowable.
