UK Tax Rebate FAQs
Your questions about TaxDay and how you can claim tax rebates are answered here
Are you a registered tax agent with HMRC?
Yes, we are registered as a tax agent with HMRC. Provided you are happy for us to represent you, we can take care of your case from start to finish.
Are you part of the UK government or HMRC?
No, TaxDay is not part of HMRC or affiliated with the UK government. We are a private company. We are also a registered tax agent with HMRC, this means that we are registered with HMRC to deal with our clients’ tax affairs.
Can I apply directly with HMRC to receive a tax rebate?
Can I submit a tax return myself directly with HMRC?
Can you transfer my money abroad?
Do I need to pay you any money up front?
In general, no.
If your claim relates to a Leaving the UK tax refund, you don’t have to pay any money in advance. We will deduct our fee automatically from any tax refund you are due back before transferring it directly into your bank account, so you don’t have to put your hand in your pocket.
For tax returns, if it is obvious from our original assessment that you don’t qualify for a tax refund and you still want us to submit a tax return on your behalf, we will request payment in advance, prior to doing any work for you. We would, of course, let you know so it is clear to you from the onset.
Do you charge VAT?
Do you charge for your time?
Do you have a minimum fee?
Yes. Our minimum fee (or administration fee) is there to cover the minimal amount of time we spend on processing a claim, on average. We charge whichever is the highest, either the administration fee or the 20% rate from any refund value, not both. For P85 claims, our minimum or administration fee is £80. We won’t charge you anything if you are not due a tax refund. For tax return claims, our minimum administration fee is £99 per tax return.
How can I find out if I’m due some tax back from HMRC?
If you worked and paid tax in the UK in the last 4 tax years and left the UK permanently (or at least until the end of the current tax year), the chances are that you could be due some tax back from HMRC. This is because all UK tax payers benefit from an annual tax free allowance (also known as “personal allowance”). If you leave the UK within a tax year, you could very well be due a tax refund. Our tax calculator can help you see if you’re eligible but this tool has its limit. However, please be aware that the tax calculator provides only an indication. Nothing replaces a good’ol chat with one of our consultants, who can help you assess if you have a valid claim or not. You can either call us or email us and we’ll respond. Free assessment and advice are part of our service. We’ll only submit a tax rebate claim to HMRC on your behalf if you’re happy for us to do so.
