Ho do I get a tax refund for wahing my workwear?

HRMC will refund you for the cost of washing your workwear. If your company provides you with company branded clothing which you are required to wear during working hours and you have to wash these clothes then you can claim a refund for the cost of washing the clothes.

The claim can be backdated 4 years plus the current year makes for a 5 year refund. You’ll need to fill out form P87 which you can download from the government website.

For more information on which occupations can claim and you can down the list from HMRC. Also Martin Lewis from MoneySavingExpert.com has written a useful article.
