RIFT Advice

Setting Up A Personal Tax Account

Have you created your personal tax account yet? Having a Personal Tax Account means that we’ll be able to get your tax refund done more quickly.

As soon as you're set up, let us know and we'll send you a link in an email that you can use to give us permission to see the income and tax information we need to work on your claim.

By 2020 everyone will have a Personal Tax Account, but you can set one up right now.

Ways to get my tax refund more quickly

How do I set up my Personal Tax Account?

Registering for an account is free and only takes 5-10 minutes.

To get started with the system, you'll need to grab a few things. First of all, dig out:

  • Your National Insurance number.
  • and a valid UK Passport
  • or your most recent P60.

A Personal Tax Account is a great way to get your tax rebates faster every year and with less fuss. Get yourself set up, and let's start putting that refund cash back in your pocket!

Once it's done we'll send you a link that you can use to authorise us to view your information so we won't have to ask you every time we need something, making it even faster to get your tax refund every year.

Getting my tax refund quickly

What else can I do with my personal tax account?

HMRC is adding more options all the time to the service. Right now, you can already:

  • Check your Income Tax estimate
  • Easily check your tax code so you can let us know if there are any issues.
  • Check and manage your tax credits.
  • Check your State Pension.
  • Track tax forms you’ve submitted online.
  • Check or update your Marriage Allowance.
  • Tell HMRC about a change of address.
  • Check or update benefits you get from work. For example, company car details and medical insurance, which we'll need to get the most from your tax refund.
  • Find your UTR number if you're self employed.
