Military Tax Refunds

On average, Military Personnel get £3,000 back through Military Tax Refunds!

Military Tax Refunds allow former and serving members of the military to recover job related costs, including money spent on milage and travel to and from base, food and drink expenses, and more.

With an average recovery of £3,000 and the ability to claim back across the last 4 years, Military Tax Refunds are a great way to get extra cash.

Fund your holidays, nights out or fuel your kit pest habits! Or put it into savings for the future…

And you can do it every year!

How it Works


It’s quite simple; when you’re posted to base for less than 24 months, this is classed as a “temporary workplace” by HMRC, meaning you can claim back the cost of your travel to and from base.

If you live in Birmingham but are posted to Bickleigh and are going back home every weekend, those fuel costs add up quickly!

Luckily, with our MTR service, you can claim those costs back – an easy way to make back some cash.

You can also recover other job related costs, like uniform laundering, overnight stays, and expenses.

Here’s a full list of the main costs we can recover:

  • Running costs for vehicles you use for work:
    • Mileage is the big one here. You can claim the cost of your miles to and from base (as a temporary workplace).
    • The milage rate covers both fuel and wear and tear of the vehicle, so it’s quite generous!
    • If you’ve had part of the milage reimbursed (by Get You Home or Home to Duty, for example), you can claim the remainder.
  • Travel and overnight expenses:
    • Travel costs to and from base (like train tickets) that are not related to your vehicle can be claimed, in addition to any hotel and food and drink expenses you’ve had to pay when staying away for work.
  • Uniforms, work clothing and tools:
    • Mess dress and uniform costs can be claimed at a flat rate of £100 for Royal Marines, Army, and RAF and at a rate of £80 for the Navy. You can include the cost of tools you’ve bought for work use, too.

We can also recover these costs for you (though they’re not usually relevant for the military):

  • Relief for working from home
  • Professional fees, subscriptions, and training courses
  • Other substantial equipment you need to buy for work

What you get back depends on your income tax rate. So, if you’re paying 20% income tax and claim for £10,000 of expenses, you would get back £2,000.

£10,000 may seem like a hefty expense bill, but remember you can claim for the last 4 years!

Our Process

We’ve made our process as straight forward as possible, so you can spend more time thinking about what to spend your refund on, while we do the admin to get it.

We’ll contact you via your preferred method (which you can select when enquiring) and outline what we need to submit the claim.

Generally, though, all we require is:

  • P60s and P45s
  • Monthly payslips
  • A list of bases attended and assignment orders
  • Details of travel i.e. when you travelled to and from base
  • Receipts (if you’re travelling by public transport and purchasing clothing for work)

And we’ll take care of the rest!

It’s that easy!

Our Team

Our values are the heart of our business, and we’ve built the company around them.
