From 7 May 2022 claims for income tax relief on employment expenses can only be made on the standard P87 form, which can be found on GOV.UK.
HMRC will reject claims that are made on substitute claim forms, but the other options above will remain available.
Although this measure is due to be introduced later this year, the new P87 form is now live here.
