2. How to claim

The way you claim tax relief on expenses depends on the amount you are claiming for.

Claims up to £2,500

You must claim using a Self Assessment tax return if you already fill one in.

If you don’t already fill in a Self Assessment tax return, and your allowable expenses are under £2,500 for the tax year, fill in form P87 and send it to the address on the form.

If you’ve made a successful claim in a previous tax year and your expenses are less than £1,000 (or £2,500 for professional fees and subscriptions), you may be able to make your claim by phone.

Claims over £2,500

You must claim using a Self Assessment tax return.
