Tax relief on work expenses – claim online

Dec 17, 2018

In a recent press release, HMRC have set out how easy it is for employees to claim back tax relief for work expenses online, rather than using agencies to do so.

According to the press release, some 85 per cent of eligible taxpayers currently pay someone to claim their money. But those who are paid through PAYE could claim the full amount of tax relief they are owed directly from HMRC. A simple Check if You Can Claim tool is available at: https://www.gov.uk/tax-relief-for-employees

If eligible, taxpayers can log in to their Personal Tax Account to claim for their tax relief online and, if their claim is approved, be paid within a matter of weeks.

Workers are urged to go directly to Gov.uk to check if they can claim extra cash back. If eligible, customers can log in to their Personal Tax Account to claim for their tax relief online and, if their claim is approved, be paid within three weeks.
