Can I claim tax back from the Inland Revenue?
Yes, everyone can and should make a claim. You have nothing to loose by making a claim and could potentially be due a refund of hundreds of pounds. You can apply for a refund by going to our tax rebates claim page.
Not everyone will be due a tax refund but, as mentioned, there is no harm in trying. The most common causes for tax rebates are when you have left the UK, working while a student, or have been put on the wrong tax code.
What do I need to claim my tax back?
To ensure that your claim is processed as quickly as possible, it will help to provide a number of forms with your application, including any P60 or P45s you were given. If you have lost any of these we can get a maximum of two replacements for you.
When will I get my tax rebate cheque?
Tax rebates usually take between 4-6 weeks to issue. As soon as we have secured your refund, we will contact you to let you know. If you do not include all the information with your claim the refund can sometimes take longer.
Can I claim a national insurance refund from the Inland Revenue?
If you are living and working in the UK you can claim back a portion of your national insurance into a private fund. This is known as contracting out of the state pension. To learn more about claiming your NI back from the Inland Revenue you can read more here.
