Tax Rebates & Refunds

When the message your national insurance number conveys does not seem to reach the HMRC

You national insurance number is a very powerful thing. When you start a job, your national insurance number is one of the first things you will be asked for. You will also be asked for your national insurance number when you begin full time study and in a whole host of other situations. This is because your national insurance number is the number used to track where you are up to in life.

It is also used to make sure that you get all the benefits you are entitled to as a result of certain conditions in your life relating to the tax system and in other administrative areas too. It is therefore a wonder that sometimes the HMRC does not seem to know that you are at university full time, or that you are working abroad or that you have spent time out of work.

This is information made available to the HMRC through your national insurance number but the message does not always get through and you do not get the tax breaks you are entitled to as a result. This is why you need to be vigilant and you need to speak to tax agencies about tax rebates when you feel something is not quite right.
