Tax Relief

If you contribute to a recognised staff association such as the Police Federation you can claim an allowance against those subscriptions. If you have never claimed for this, all is not lost because you can claim for up to six previous years.

Below is a proforma letter which you can use to send to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

Dear Sir/Madam

Re: Tax relief on Police Federation subscriptions

National Insurance No……………………………………………… Police Pay Reference…………………………………………………

I am a member of Kent Police. As such I am a subscribing member to the Police Federation of England and Wales. My subscriptions are deducted at source by Kent Police.

I have been a subscribing member of the Police Federation since…………………………

The following is a list of Federation Subscriptions that I have paid since……………………………………………:

From 1 January 2011 - £4.98 per week = £21.58 per month

I therefore claim tax relief on my subscriptions in accordance with your Head Office reference SAPP T1644/23 82/MA.

Yours faithfully

 

This should be sent to your local tax office.

Please note Since June 2013, Student Constables will have paid a reduced subscription rate of £5.42 (£1.25 per week) during year 1 and £10.79 (£2.49 per week) during year 2 and your letter will need to be amended accordingly. 


Tax Relief On Uniform Cleaning

Police officers may be able to claim tax relief on the cost of cleaning their uniform.

HMRC will allow an employee to claim for reasonable upkeep costs (i.e. laundry) of clothing.
