Don't miss out on a tax refund for work expenses, HMRC urges

05 Jun 2023

HMRC is urging employed workers to make sure they don't miss out when they claim a refund on work-related expenses.

More than 800,000 taxpayers claimed refunds for work expenses during the 2021/22 tax year.

Although the average claim was £125, over 70% of claimants missed out on getting the full amount they were due.

Jonathan Athow, HMRC's Director General for Customer Strategy and Tax Design, said:

'Every penny counts and we want to make sure employed workers are getting what they deserve - their hard-earned cash straight back into their pockets.'

Calculating work-related expenses can be complex, please contact us for advice.
