What parts of my uniform are tax deductible?

Everyone wants to pay less tax , but in order to do that you need to know what

you can claim… and what you can’t. You might be surprised what items Total Uniform Solutions offer to businesses and which ones you can claim. Check out the checklist below and be sure to educate your staff if they are required to pay upfront for their uniform.

You can claim:


BRIEFCASE:

If used for work and/or business purposes the cost is fully deductible if $300 or less. If more than $300, it must be Depreciated.


CLOTHING, UNIFORMS AND FOOTWEAR:

  • Compulsory uniform: Uniform must be unique and particular to an organization (e.g. Corporate uniform)

  • Non-Compulsory uniform: If on a register kept by the Department of Industry, Science and Tourism.

  • Occupational specific: The clothing identifies a particular trade, vocation or profession (e.g. Chefs and nurses)

  • Protective: Must be used to protect the person or their conventional clothing. May include sunscreen.


DRY CLEANING:

Allowed if the cost of the clothing is also deductible. See also 'Laundry'.


GLASSES AND GOGGLES:

Protective only.


LAUNDRY AND MAINTENANCE:

Allowed if the cost of clothing is allowable (see ‘Clothing, Uniforms and Footwear'). Reasonable claims of up to $150 do not need to be substantiated.


PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT:

Includes harnesses, goggles, safety glasses, breathing masks, helmets, and boots. Claims for sunscreen, sunglasses and wet weather gear allowed if used to provide protection from natural environment.


STATIONERY:
