Tax Rebates & Refunds

The HMRC can examine its own records to see if you are entitled to a refund

Evidence is the key when making a claim for a tax rebate. However, the evidence often goes missing on your side of things. It is hard to keep track of all the bits of paperwork you receive through work and directly to your home address. With the best intentions, these items of paperwork are not always to hand when you start thinking about tax refunds because you have detected a mistake somewhere along the way.

Fortunately, it is not always necessary for you to have all the right evidence in front of you. If these items of paperwork have been sent to you then there is a record of their contents at the HMRC. The important thing is that you flag up the error and notify the HMRC that they need to do a bit of digging.

Claim agencies are adept at doing this on their clients’ behalf, informing the HMRC that an error may have occurred and that they need to examine their records more closely. The HMRC will respond to this request, investigate the matter and generate a tax refund where necessary.
