Tax relief for NHS staff – don’t lose out!

We know that the current cost of living crisis, years of below-inflation pay increases and inadequate mileage reimbursement rates mean that our members working in the NHS are under an increasing amount of financial strain. And we know that for many of our members, all of this means every penny matters when it comes to making ends meet.

That’s why we want our members to benefit from our longstanding agreement with HMRC, which allows for health members working in certain professions to claim tax relief for cleaning their uniforms, and for nurses and midwives – their shoes and socks.

You may also be eligible for tax relief on 70 percent of your UNISON subs depending on what it is you do in the NHS and you will also qualify for tax relief on your professional registration fees.

To find our more including the eligibility criteria and how to make a claim, please see our resources below. Make sure you don’t lose out!

Our updated tax relief resource is available to activists on UNISON’s organising space and to staff via Pearl.
