In an ideal world dogs could talk, people could fly and everyone would qualify for a tax refund. Sadly, there are several reasons why those things aren't true.

Depending on your situation, you might not be able to get a repayment right now. The silver lining is that there isn’t any overpaid tax missing from your wallet. HMRC's rules are pretty strict, and there's no getting around them. Of course, that doesn't mean you can't get one if things change later.

Before we send in a refund claim, we ask a few simple questions to check whether you've overpaid your tax. As well as the more general reasons people working in any kind of job don't qualify MOD personnel have some extra hoops to jump through.

If you don't qualify but know someone who does, you can earn a refer a friend reward by telling them about us!
