How to claim a tax rebate?
How long does a tax rebate take?
Typically it takes between 8 to 10 weeks to process an average tax rebate claim. HMRC are always busier closer to the self assessment tax return deadline of 31st January and the tax credit renewal deadlines of 31 July and tend to be slower at those times.
What many people don't realise is that it's possible to claim for the last 4 tax years. The average 4-year claim from RIFT is £3,023.56. We can claim for more than just travel expenses too. We can claim for other work related expenses such as laundry costs for your uniform, meals, tools and equipment, lodging and the list goes on! We're the UK's leading tax refund experts so get in touch to see what you could be owed.
