The best way to claim a tax refund is to apply to HMRC directly. It’s quick and easy. All you have to do is go to GOV.UK and set up a government gateway account, if you don’t already have one.

You might be able to claim tax relief for things like:

  • professional fees and subscriptions
  • uniforms and work clothing
  • using your own vehicles for work travel (this doesn’t mean your journey from home to work)
  • working from home

You may have seen adverts for companies that will do these claims on your behalf, but it’s important to know that they will charge you for doing this – up to 50% of your refund. If you want to keep all of the money you’re due then it’s best to come to HMRC directly.
