Tax Back on Employment Expenses

Did you know you may be due a tax refund based on your work expenses?

If your employer does not reimburse you the full amount, you may be eligible to claim for tax relief on these expenses.

What could you claim for?

  • Mileage to away matches
  • Mileage to meet the away match coach
  • Mileage between training locations
  • Replacement boots
  • Mileage when on loan

In addition to the above, and for those not in the sports industry, you may be able to claim for the following:

  • Uniforms, work clothing and tools (Replacement costs)
  • Vehicles you use for work (Mileage)
  • Travel and overnight expenses
  • Professional fees and subscriptions
  • Working at home
  • Buying other equipment

Please note, this doesn't include travelling from your home address to work, unless it's a temporary place of work.

To claim tax back, you must have paid tax in the year. Tax refunds will be based on the rate of tax you pay. You could claim up to 4 tax years.

Although our core client base is Professional and Semi-Professional Athletes we also support the following where your employer does not reimburse the full cost of expenses:

  • Sports Coaches and Trainers
  • Construction Workers
  • Teachers
  • NHS Workers

If your profession does not fall into the above, please still contact us to discuss!
