Claiming a tax refund: Is it worth the hassle?

by 1st Contact | Apr 08, 2011
  • Many people don’t bother to apply for a tax refund because they either believe they are not due anything, or they feel the hassle far outweighs what they might get back. But the truth is with just a phone call to 1st Contact Tax Refunds, and a little time and energy to get the right documentation together, you could receive back an average of £850 – possibly even more if you haven’t claimed at all in the past five years.
    Tax refunds

    Answer these questions:

    1. Have you paid Emergency Tax in the last 5 years?
    2. Have you left the UK before the end of a tax year (6 April to 5 May)?
    3. Have you had more than 1 employer in a tax year?
    4. Have you worked for only part of a tax year?
    5. Have you been on an incorrect Tax code at any point in the last 5 years?
    6. Have you had two or more jobs concurrently?

    If you answered YES to 1 or more of the above questions, there’s a good chance you are due a refund.
