If you work in the healthcare sector you are entitled to tax relief on certain union and professional fees you pay every year. If you wear a uniform you can also claim tax relief on the cost of its laundry and upkeep, and even for shoes and socks or tights.
Thousands of workers in the healthcare sector miss out every year because they have failed to claim the tax relief they are entitled to within HMRC's deadline.
Am I eligible for tax relief?
If you work in the healthcare sector and you pay for professional or union subscriptions, pay regulators' fees or wear a uniform and launder it yourself, you may be entitled to a tax rebate.
We are the UK's leading experts in this type of claim and we've already obtained refunds for more than 100,000 UK taxpayers.
It's not just about uniform laundry
If you wear uniform at work and wash it yourself you can claim but if you work in healthcare there are more than 30 other things that you may also be able to claim tax relief on, depending on your job.
These other reliefs can increase your tax rebate by £100s, if you enter a claim with us we can help you identify these reliefs and maximise your refund.
Here are just a few examples of the things you could be getting tax relief on.
Subscription tax relief
If you pay professional and union subscriptions such as those to Unison, the RCN, fees to a registration body such as the NMC, HCPC or SSSC, or you pay professional indemnity insurance for example to the Medical Protection Society you can claim tax relief on these costs.
HMRC holds a list of approved bodies available for tax relief:
