Glyn's Uniform Tax Refund Story


Football fan Glyn Williams has been working as a Steward for both Bristol City and Bristol Rovers Football Clubs since about 2008. “It’s a great job,” he says. “It’s very rewarding. It mostly involves keeping an eye on the crowd, making sure they behave, escorting them from the premises if they don’t. It’s a bit like security work more than anything.

 “The best thing about it is just getting out and doing the work. Get to see some of the games now and again, of course, which is a bonus.”

As part of his steward’s uniform, Glyn has to wear a heavy duty high visibility jacket which he regularly takes home to wash.

An animal lover, he currently lives in Southmead, Bristol with three dogs, two cats, a couple of chickens and some fish.

Glyn first heard about Uniform Tax Rebate from a friend, and then saw one of our adverts on the internet. “I’d never heard about them until somebody I work with mentioned it to me. Then I saw it on Facebook and recognised the name. I thought I’d give it a try and see if I got anything.”

After successfully claiming with Uniform Tax Rebate, Glyn received a rebate of over £250, which he spent on petrol and everyday shopping, including stocking up on food for all the animals. He also received a modified tax code and now saves over £100 a year in tax. “It was pretty easy,” he says. “I just filled out a form, then they sent me one back. I sent that away and it was done.”

"After he got notice of his rebate through the post he recommended Uniform Tax Rebate to his colleagues: “I told one or two people at work. Whether they took my advice or not I don’t know. I just left it down to them, told them to try it out.

“It’s great knowing it’s there, that you can claim back on your work stuff. That you can get a bit of money back and recommend it to other people. It really is a great service!”
