Non-compulsory work uniform

A work uniform is non-compulsory where your employer does not strictly enforce the wearing of this clothing at work. This usually means that you (not your employer) decide whether or not to wear particular types of clothing.

Registration of Corporate Wardrobe

Expenses relating to a non-compulsory work uniform cannot be claimed as a deduction unless your employer has registered the design with the AusIndustry.

Textiles Clothing and Footwear Development Authority (Australia) (TCFDA) Register allows employers to register non-compulsory occupational clothing, thereby avoiding liability for FBT and allowing employees to claim the cost of such clothing as a tax deduction.

You will need to ask your employer if they have registered the clothing design. Alternatively, you can obtain details of registered corporate wardrobes directly from the Department of Industry directly on 03 9268 7944.

Note: Shoes, short socks and stockings can never form part of a non-compulsory work uniform.
