A MUST read for anyone that stupidly used a company to claim Uniform Tax Rebate from HMRC

As we’ve mentioned in the past it’s fairly easy to reclaim on the Government website if you want a uniform tax rebate.

However, the web is full of adverts promoting websites offering to sort out all the paperwork (one form) for you (whilst they ‘sneakily’ take 20% + a fee + VAT) but you should already know this if you’re reading this. We have discussed this on main occasions but never knew this part:

Anyway, what these companies don’t warn you about is that “apparently when you use a claims company, HMRC advised me that you give them ‘life long’ authority to claim any tax rebate on your behalf and any rebates automatically issued by HMRC will go through them! I’d advise anyone whose liaised with a claim company and sent paperwork back to call HMRC and see if any company has this authority and get it removed! It can be removed over the telephone, I did it within 5 minutes!

I got stung by a Tax Rebate claim company as well; I went through a website called https://www.uniformtaxrebate.co.uk/ – they sent me the paperwork and I sent everything back, under the impression I needed a company to claim on my behalf not realising I could just sent a letter myself.”

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
