PAYE Tax Refund


PAYE Tax Rebates

Welcome to the PAYE tax area. Check the tax information below and learn more about your tax code, claiming a P45/P60 refund with tax forms P85, P87, P50, etc. The most common reasons for a tax overpayment are: leaving the UK, starting or leaving a job part way through the tax year, wrong or emergency tax code, frequent change of jobs, more than one job at the same time, etc. For example, if you are a student - any part time work, holiday/seasonal work, agency work, etc means you should consider claiming a tax refund. If you have a specific query about PAYE tax, you can ask a professional tax adviser and we will get back to you within 24 hours.


Tax Aid for employed persons - the PAYE Tax System (P45/P60)

Pay As You Earn (PAYE) system is a method of collecting income tax. It concerns employed persons - your employer deducts tax from your wages at source (before paying the salary) and pays the tax on your behalf to the HMRC. However, those deductions may differ from your final annual tax liability, so any overpayment is reclaimable.


The Tax Code is issued by HMRC and it tells your employer how much tax they must deduct each week or month. NOTE: If the tax office does not have enough information they can issue a wrong tax code or an emergency (BR) tax code which usually means you are paying too much tax. "Emergency Tax" means you pay tax at 20% without any tax-free allowance. It is usually indicated by a "BR" Tax Code on your payslip/P45/P60.


Claiming a P85 tax refund is the process of getting your PAYE tax back when you are leaving the UK. You can claim this tax even before the relevant tax year is over! It can be done by completing the P85 and a few other tax forms and sending them to the HMRC.
NOTE: you must have the P45/P60 vouchers from your employer(s).


Claiming a P87 tax refund is the process of getting tax relief for work-related expenses - e.g business mileage in your own car. It can be done by completing the P87 and a few other tax forms and sending them to the HMRC.
NOTE: you must have the P45/P60 vouchers from your employer(s).


Claiming a P50 tax refund is the process of getting your PAYE tax back when you have stopped working and will NOT work again by the end of the tax year. You can claim this tax even before the relevant tax year is over! For example - if you are a student who's had a summer job, or just been admitted to college - you can make the claim in September, no need to wait till next April. It can be done by completing the P50 and a few other tax forms and sending them to the HMRC.
NOTE: you must have the P45/P60 vouchers from your employer(s).


To ensure you get the maximum possible refund and avoid mistakes and delays, we recommend that you use professional help.
