Employee Tax Relief on Business Expenses

HMRC is keen for employees to know that there is no need to use a professional claims company if they want to claim tax relief on business expenses that are not reimbursed by their employer. This would include for example; uniforms, protective clothing and tools, professional fees and subscriptions, and mileage reimbursed at less that 45p per mile.


There are two ways to make a claim; either via personal tax account or by completing a form P87. Once the claim is processed the money will come back to the employee via a positive adjustment to their tax code. It will be carried forward each year until the employee tells HMRC they no longer have the expense.
