Flat rate expenses, or work-related expenses, are a kind of tax relief for employees. They are called "flat rate" expenses because you can claim a flat rate of tax relief set by the government instead of the individual costs.

The flat rate expenses scheme makes it easy to claim tax relief if you’ve had to use your own money for:

  • Travel
  • Clothing
  • Tools
  • Professional subscriptions
  • Anything else you've had to buy for your job.
