I’m not British and I’m returning to my home country indefinitely, how do I claim tax back?

You could be due some money from HMRC in the form of a tax rebate if you’re a foreign national and you’re planning to leave the UK to return to live in your home country (and you are not likely to return to work in the UK until the end of the tax year). You may qualify for a tax rebate if:

  • You worked in the UK in the last 4 tax years and paid income tax
  • You’re leaving the UK until at least the end of the current tax year (ending 5th April)

What we charge…

20%* of the refund value, subject to a minimum administration fee of £80. We’ll charge you either the £80 administration fee or the 20% rate, whichever is the higher.

Our fee includes:

  • All calculations & computations
  • Completing all official paperwork
  • Submitting paperwork and liaising with HMRC
  • Regularly updating you

No need to pay us anything upfront, we will simply deduct our fee directly from your refund and repay you the balance, directly into your bank account. Bank transfers to UK bank accounts are free of charge. Bank transfers in other currencies will be subject to a small fee to cover our own bank charges; these fees vary depending on the country where your account is held.

NO REFUND, NO FEE!

If you are not due a refund, we won’t charge you anything!

Price match guarantee

We challenge you to find a cheaper rate anywhere else for the same service! That’s right, if you ever did find a cheaper quote, we want to know about it and we’ll be happy to match it, provided you can provide the source of your quote as evidence.

I’m not British and I’ve already left the UK after a period of living and working in the UK, how do I claim tax back?

Under current HMRC rules, you can claim back any income tax you may have overpaid, going back as far as 4 tax years. You can't claim back all the tax that you paid while you worked in the UK, as some people may think. There are strict rules in place, which we can help you with. You may qualify for a tax rebate if:

  • You worked and paid UK income tax in the last 4 tax years (from 6th April 2010)
  • You overpaid – meaning you paid too much income tax

This would normally apply if you left your employment in the UK in the middle of a tax year. If that’s your case, the chances are you could be due a sizeable refund…

I’m not British and I came to the UK for a work secondment, how do I claim tax back?

Some non-UK employees are requested by their employer to come to the UK and work as secondment. In that scenario, you would have been remunerated in GBP through the PAYE (‘Pay As You Earn’) tax system used by UK employers. The good news about this is that you may actually qualify for a substantial tax refund (also known as a tax rebate) from HMRC when you return to your home country. Many of our clients obtain very substantial tax rebates worth several hundreds of pounds, so it is definitely worth checking…

You may qualify for a tax rebate if all the following criteria apply to you:

  • You worked in the UK branch of the same company for training purposes or to oversee or be part of a particular project in the UK
  • Your period of secondment ended after 5 April 2010.
  • Your period of secondment in the UK did not exceed 24 months
  • After your period of secondment in the UK you returned to work for the same employer in your own country

What we charge…

20%* from any refund due to you, subject to £180* minimum administration fee. We'll charge you either the £180 administration fee or the 20% fee rate, whichever is the higher.

*VAT at 20% will be automatically added to the fee only if you reside in a country part of the European Union.

Our fee includes:

  • All calculations & computations
  • Completing all official paperwork
  • Submitting paperwork and liaising with HMRC
  • Regularly updating you

Do I need to submit a self assessment tax return?

Yes, if you came to work to the UK and contacted HMRC in order to register for Self Assessment before returning to your home country, in the hope of claiming a tax refund. If this is your case, HMRC would have written to you and issued you with a Unique Tax Reference (UTR) number. They would also have written to your overseas address to remind you of your obligation to file a tax return within the stipulated deadlines. Serious financial penalties may be levied against you if you fail to do so.

If you didn’t contact HMRC to register for self assessment before returning to your own country, it may not be too late! You have a period of four tax years in order to claim a tax refund via self assessment. This means that the earliest that you can claim back a refund following a period of work secondment in the UK is 6th April 2010. You cannot claim a refund for any secondment period that happened before that date. So don’t leave it too late or you may run the risk of losing your entitlement to a tax rebate for good!
