Each tax year will be recalculated if you enter a claim. This often identifies other overpayments due to incorrect tax codes, multiple employments, ceasing of job, etc. In these cases we can identify a much larger tax rebate. We regularly identify rebates of over £1,000 for customers who were originally estimated a lower amount.
If you claim now you will receive tax relief for the current tax year and future years that allowances continue to apply, paid through your monthly pay, no charge will be made on future tax relief or refunds.
You don't need to make any upfront payment to us in order for us to check if you are due a rebate.
We will ensure that your current year reliefs are correct and that your future year allowances are adjusted in line with the current year to ensure you are no longer being overtaxed. There will be no charge calculated for amending your current tax code and you will receive any tax refunds due in the current year and in future years directly.
If you are due a refund in the 4 previous tax years we will receive that refund from HMRC on your behalf and deduct charges in accordance with those quoted on the website prior to making a payment to you.
Standard deduction is 30% + £30, plus VAT, where due on any refund payment HMRC send us before passing payment on to you. Charges are limited to the previous 4 tax years we check and we will not make any deduction on future tax refunds.
If no refund is due the service is FREE to use. If a refund is due standard pricing is 30% + £30, plus VAT, where due on any refund payment HMRC send us before passing payment on to you. The charge is levied on all refunds received from HMRC covered by the claim period (4 previous years) regardless of reason. When entering a claim you agree to legally and unconditionally assign the rights to any refund for the previous 4 years to OTR, when payment is made to us we will forward the residual balance to you net of our agreed fees. On receipt of the form HMRC will manually reconcile (calculate) your tax liability for each year of your claim. If unreconciled differences are present on your taxpayer record for any year these differences may positively or negatively effect your tax liability on top of the effect of any allowances or expenses claimed for. HMRC perform a more basic automatic reconciliation on taxpayer records from April to November in the tax year following the end of each tax year. By submitting your claim you forgo the rights to any benefits that may have been accrued as a result of HMRC performing an automatic reconciliation, from the date your form is received by HMRC.
Bank Health Care Assistant gets rebate of nearly £200
Mariahma Hamilton, mother of three and Bank Health Care Assistant, got a nice surprise when checking her inbox - an email that netted her almost £200!
“I had never even heard of Uniform Tax Rebate until I received a companywide email telling me I was entitled to receive money back for maintaining my uniform.”
The healthcare professional, later on that evening, found the website and applied.
“I really liked the website. I found the calculator very easy to use and was shocked when I saw how much money I could claim back. Shortly after doing so I received a letter that said I qualified for a rebate and only three weeks later I received a cheque for £192! Since then I’ve been telling anyone I think it will help, I even told the tellers at my bank!”
Mrs Hamilton has spent a lot of her life looking after people. As well as raising a family, she’s spent the last five years working on a Mental Health Ward mostly caring for the elderly.
“Though it can be a hard job, especially when you’re working the night shift, it’s also a very rewarding one.”
However the Health Care professional has dreams of going further and is currently in her second year of studying to be a nurse. Just recently she finished a ‘community placement.’
“It’s a relatively broad term, it’s where nurses go out into the community to help discharged patients. The work is very varied, one day you may be looking in on someone suffering from dementia another day taking meals to an elderly person with no one to look after them.”
With the money gained from her rebate though she was able to take care of herself a little bit better for a change.
“I spent the money mostly on little personal things that I can’t remember now but I did use some of it to buy myself some comfy work shoes. It might not sound like much but when you’re on your feet for hours on end comfy shoes can be a godsend.”
