The Uniform Tax Claim website was setup in 2013 to assist workers in the UK who are responsible for maintaining their work uniforms claim back tax payments. In the past many UK workers have been unaware that it was even possible to claim a tax rebate based on the associated costs of cleaning, repairing, and replacing their work wear and uniforms. With this information in mind the Uniform Tax Claim website was established, and the website’s owners are now pleased to announce a large increase in successful applications for the first quarter of 2014.
The large number of UK workers taking advantage of the service offered by this website in order to claim a uniform tax rebate has been largely attributed to the common perception that processing the application without assistance can be a very time consuming task. “Traditionally dealing with the UK tax office has been seen as a very time consuming and frustrating experience according to the people we’ve spoken to” the website’s founder explained. “By offering a simple one-form solution for initiating a claim, we’ve been inundated with applications from those who feel they qualify for a tax refund” he continued.
As the conditions laid out for qualifying for a claim are reportedly rather detailed and protracted, many applicants are put off from filing an application due to the perceived difficulty of the process. “When we canvased our users, we discovered that many of those using our service hadn’t made a claim independently due to the belief that it would be a fruitless quest thanks to the high levels of bureaucracy involved in the process. Some even said that they couldn’t even find the relevant forms on the tax office website” the Uniform Tax Claim website manager shared. “Whether this is the case or not, there is still the perception that dealing with government tax officials is an arduous undertaking, and this partly explains why our website has resonated with UK workers” he revealed.
As the website, which can be found at http://www.uniformtaxclaim.co.uk/, has been created to serve just one single purpose, it is reportedly very easy to use. For those wishing to make a claim for a refund on their income tax payments based on their expenditure on the upkeep of their compulsory work uniform, the website features a large form on the homepage for starting the process. “Instead of covering many different types of tax rebate on our website, we decided to keep it simple and only cater to those wishing to make one type of claim, which was related to uniform expenses. That way we could keep the site as easy to use as possible, with a clear form applicants could use to get started” the designer of the website proclaimed. “I think this is why we’ve managed to get as many signups as we have so quickly” he speculated.
As more and more workers in the UK become aware that they might be entitled to an income tax rebate, based on their expenses related to their work wear and uniforms, it seems like websites that simplify the claims process will continue to grow in popularity.
