TAX BACK - Laundry, Polish etc

Discussion in 'Finance, Property, Law' started by ChosenmanJanner, Jul 10, 2007.

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. I am enquiring if anyone else has heard about TAX relief for serving soldiers to claim back TAX on Laundry and boot polish etc.
    If anyone knows about it...How much can you claim back? and can you back date it?
  2. As per a number of previous threads this is a bit of an urban myth (but with some truth in there somewhere). Latest update was a letter from HMRC about 2-3 months ago to the MOD:

    I tried a couple of years ago and got fobbed of and have yet to come across anyone who has succesfully claimed for this sort of thing. Please let us know if you have been successful and on what grounds.
