Employed in the construction industry? Pay for your own travel costs, tools or protective clothing? You can claim back tax relief on your expenses for the last four tax years.

What you can claim for

It might surprise you to learn what construction workers who aren’t self employed can claim for. This includes:

  • Travel expenses − if you have to travel to different sites for less than 24 months, and use your own car, van, or motorbike, or even public transport
  • Tools – if you buy your own tools and aren’t reimbursed by your employer
  • Protective clothing − for example gloves and boots that aren’t supplied by your employer
  • Washing protective clothing or uniforms – even if your employer supplies the clothing you can still claim if you have to pay for cleaning it
  • Accommodation and subsistence expenses − if you’re not reimbursed in full by your employer – or are paid an allowance which is taxed


5 things to know before you claim…

  • If you don’t claim you won’t get back what your owed
  • It doesn’t effect your employer
  • You don’t have to be with the same employer to claim
  • Receipts aren’t always needed
