Reclaim tax for uniforms

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by agoodgrouping, Oct 10, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Did you read this bit?

    'One group that usually doesn't need to bother going through the process is the Armed Forces. The cost paid for the maintenance of their uniforms should be dealt with through their tax code, with their tax-free personal allowance being raised to compensate for the outlay.'

    Some people will have 'Uniform Upkeep Allowance' on their P60.

    If so, no rebate. If not, then apply.

  2. How many times do we get to see this, cheers Martin Lewis.

    "You have to pay to clean, repair or replace it yourself. However, you can't claim if your employer washes your kit, provides facilities to do so (even if you don't use them) or pays you for doing this maintenance."

    That fucks you up ..... You get washing machines supplied in your block and I take it that will also apply to the Pads quarters so No claim for you !!!
  7. Ohh that does that mean only thse stab b'sterds can claim ?

    Well I never lived in a pads quarter so do you get supplied with white goods or shock horror you had to buy your own !!
  12. Yeah but dont go with the RCN's latest scam. They are sending out a mailshot for a company that does it for you at 40p in the pound reclaimed. HMRC has a form for free.
