1 in 3 due a Tax Refund

by Kobus Van den Bergh | Mar 16, 2010
  • “Don’t miss out on money due to you because you’re not sure if you’re eligible for a refund or not” says Kobus Van den Bergh, Tax refunds Manager at 1st Contact. According to Kobus, 1 in 3 people are due a tax refund, but many don’t bother to go through the motions to receive their money.

    Are you due a tax refund?

    There are many instances where people have paid more tax than was necessary. Possible reasons for this include the following:

    • When the total taxable income in the tax year is less than your personal allowance;
    • If you left your job before the end of the tax year and have since stopped working in the UK;
    • If the company you worked for don’t have your NI number or you don’t yet have an NI number.
