Seconds to claim

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.

Complete your claim in less than 60 seconds

Thank you for you interest in claiming with us.

Once these changes have been made and we are ready to submit your claim we will contact you by email.

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.

Your Claim

I'm sorry this is a one off process. When you claim the first time any relief is added to your tax code which means you continue to benefit from it as long as you continue your job.

Because you have stated that you have previously made a claim before through us, with HMRC directly or with another company we cannot continue with your new claim.

Self Assessment Taxpayers

I'm sorry but this claim process is for taxpayers with simple tax affairs. This means you have a regular employer who pays you a salary and deducts tax at source.

If you are required to submit a self assessment tax return, usually by 31st January deadline, in any of the years of the claim you can't use this service.

Sorry - you don't qualify for a claim

You have indicated that you earn less than £1000 per month.

I'm afraid this is too low to qualify for a tax rebate so we will not be able to process a claim for you.

Sorry - you don't qualify for a claim

Based on your employment history, you have not been a taxpayer long enough to qualify for a rebate. I'm afraid this means we will be unable to process your claim.

Sorry - you don't qualify for a claim

Based on your employment history and lack of expenses we have calculated that you have nothing to claim for. I'm afraid this means we will be unable to process your claim.

Sorry - you don't qualify for a claim

Unfortunately we cannot process your claim if you work part-time.

Thank you

To the full extent permitted by law, accepts no liability whatsoever for any loss or damage which may occur, resulting from the use of any material obtained from the website.

When you submit your details though the website we will prepare, subject to and at the discretion of certain conditions applied by us, a form in the appropriate format to report your circumstances to HMRC.

We will apply certain validation checks to the information you provide and supply details of allowances that are applicable to the circumstances you indicated in completion of the online form.

It is your responsibility to ensure the information you provide is complete, truthful and accurate. OTR assumes no responsibility for checking or ensuring the accuracy, completeness and truthfulness of information you provide prior to submission of the form to HMRC. If you give false information you could be prosecuted.

OTR does not act as your agent or representative in any communications with HMRC. It remains your responsibility to provide any supplementary information requested by HMRC and to follow up on the outcome of any claim directly with HMRC if you wish to do so.

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.

If the reconciliation results in a refund that refund will be sent to us and we will deduct a fee in accordance with our terms and conditions.

We will not be held responsible for any underpayment of tax that arises from recalculation of tax.

OTR provides payment processing services to customers obtaining tax refunds and by submitting the claim form you are agreeing that any resulting refund transaction will be processed by OTR.

OTR will receive refunds from HMRC on behalf of the customer and deduct charges in accordance with those quoted on the website prior to making a refund payment to you.

OTR reserves the right to issue any refund by another method at our discretion.

Standard pricing for expense claims is 30% + £30, plus VAT, where due on any refund payment HMRC send us before passing payment on to you.

For marriage claims the standard pricing is 30% + £130, 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.

In the unlikely event that a refund is paid to us as a result of a subsequent claim by you or a different tax advisor we will refund any commission deducted in the refund, subject to you providing suitable documentary evidence of said subsequent claim.

If you want to remove the instruction to pay subsequent refunds to us, which is usually not necessary, we agree to raise the deed of assignment held over refunds in the period. Such action will be subject to a £50 + VAT administration fee and will only be permitted if we are satisfied that any refund from your original claim has already been paid to us in accordance with your original agreement, or if no refund was due.

OTR does not assume any responsibility for your tax affairs beyond submission of the form. Any benefit or refund in future years or the current tax year immediately following tax refund claim period will not be sent to us. You will receive the full benefit of any allowances claimed in your tax code as long as they still apply.

If you cease to pay the expenses claimed for or the allowances no longer apply to your circumstances it is your responsibility to inform HMRC of this.

By agreeing to the terms and conditions, signing the application and clicking the final submit button you are waiving any statutory right to cancellation. You can cancel your claim at our discretion within 48 hours of completing the application by using the cancel button on your confirmation email. OTR takes no responsibility for cancellation of the claim where the customer does not receive the confirmation email or attempts to cancel by any other method.

In the event that a replacement cheque is required we will charge an administration fee of £25 + VAT for each additional cheque following the original.

Where refunds remain unclaimed for 12 months we will charge a dormancy fee equal to the unclaimed amount.
