Hi,

So I have seen in another chat that we should get £120 for the uniform cleaning added to our tax code. However, can someone tell me how it is £120 as I spoke to tax office today and they have only applied a fixed flat rate of £60 onto mine.

Thanks

If you don't earn enough to pay tax how can you benefit from it?

I can only confirm that since I commenced employment with RM -tax year 2013-14- my PAYE Coding Notice automatically included Flat rate job expenses +£120.

This amount is explained Note 2. Flat Rate Job Expenses - This is the tax relief for expenses associated with your employment for things like tools and specialist clothing.

I would call again & ask them to explain why you have been applied with half the standard amount.

My rate is 120 too, but looking on the Govt. website the 'Standard' amount is £60 allowance, so I don't know why some are 120 and then the OP has been told 60.
The table for specific occupations is on the Govt. website here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/job-expense ... laim-table but
RM/Postal staff are not specifically listed.

The notes on Coding notice for 2013-14 states;
[3.We agree that £120 is the amount of tax relief you are due for the expense that you are likely to have to pay out when you are doing your job. You will get tax relief for this amount at the highest rate of tax you pay. For example this could include laundry costs of uniforms or protective clothing.]

I was not aware The standard flat-rate expense allowance for uniform maintenance is £60 (2019/20) - I do not know why i (& others) are given double that amount.

Answered your own question - you wouldn't. Appears to be unfair I know, however, (and I'm not an expert on tax credits)
but I would imagine someone who earns less than the personal tax allowance is eligible for tax credits - whereas
the person who gets the uniform tax rebate of 12 quid possibly isn't. Some might be eligible for both?

CEO's of big companies who make a loss on their investments can offset the loss against other gains (no names
mentioned here) - I think we can agree that the tax system in this country has issues........
