When it comes to claiming a tax refund back from HMRC, a quick start is always the best way to get your money back fast. With the rocketing cost of living putting a serious squeeze on the UK’s household finances, it’s never been so important to make sure the taxman isn’t sitting on a big pile of your cash. About 1 in 4 of us is already struggling to pay essential bills this year, but only 1 in 3 is actually claiming the tax refunds that could instantly ease that pressure!

The RIFT message is getting through, though. We sent well over 1,000 tax refund claims through to HMRC for our customers on the very first day of the 2022/23 tax year. That’s the 6th of April, if you’re new to the tax refund system. That means we’re only a month into the new tax year right now – but already 12,000 people have set the wheels in motion for their next tax refund with RIFT!

Those claims really matter, too. All told, the pay-outs for those refunds are going to put a grand total of more than £10 million back in RIFT customers’ pockets at an incredibly challenging time. Basic, everyday costs like fuel and food are rising fast across the board. Those expenses are painful - but they’re the exact same costs that earn you a tax refund each year, meaning average HMRC pay-outs are rising too!

If you’re not sure whether you can claim a tax refund again this year, we’ve made it really quick and simple to find out with our new free online checker. Just a few quick clicks will let you know where you stand, and help get your next tax refund claim off to a flying start. Last year, 2 out of 3 people who checked whether they had a claim to make found out they were owed some tax back. It’s a good thing they looked, too. All that cash would have stayed in HMRC’s hands otherwise.

Check If I Can Claim Again

What if I haven’t claimed a tax refund before?

If you’ve never claimed your overpaid tax back from HMRC before, RIFT has you covered – and there’s absolutely no time to waste! Our free tax rebate calculator will quickly let you know how much you could be owed.

Remember – you can claim back any overpaid tax you’re owed for up to 4 years. That’s a rock-solid deadline, too. Any tax refunds you haven’t claimed after the time limit expires will vanish forever into the depths of HMRC! The good news is that RIFT can get it all back to you, with an average 4-year tax refund claim coming to a massive £2,500!
