Tax refunds: Do it the smart and easy way

by 1st Contact | May 24, 2016
  • There are two ways to claim a UK tax refund: Through a tax refund agency or on your own. The DIY route might seem easy enough, but it often winds up causing frustration and netting you fewer Pounds. Going through an agency will save you time and earn you a larger refund.

    Below is the story of Sophie and Ella, two young women who tried to get tax refunds after working in the UK.
