  1. Cannot seem to find the answer anywhere so was hoping someone may be able to advise onhow I may deal with this when the time comes? Think in the four months I have been on Universal Credit I have had a full payment just the once due to having a couple of part time employers with varied offers of work and hours whilst I look again for full time. Back in October/November I received two Tax Rebates, one higher than the other. This was a tad surprising so I rang the Tax Office to see if this was correct and was informed that one was definitely correct but the advisor seemed a bit c

  3. Hello all, I am currently having problems with the website in the title of this thread. (All one word). Being under the impression that they were in fact part of the HMRC, I requested a work mileage rebate form from them, filled it out, signed and returned it. I then received a call very recently to request some further info regarding my application. In essence they wanted to confirm my employer, my address and they also requested copies of my mileage forms. Immediately after this call I did some further research in to this website, as something didn't feel right.
  4. Hi I have a personal loan with Natwest all paid up to date and fine. Had the loan for around 13 months and have asked for an early settlement figure thinking I would get a rebate on the interest. They tell me not so. The early settleemnt figure has come and states no rebate under S95 of consumer credit act 1974 or under the agreement. Does this sound right? Thanks
  5. My nephew was self-employed for a part of last year. He therefore submitted is self assessment forms, which they received 24 april 2014. He confirmed this by phone and at the same time they informed him there was a huge delay, particularly with paper applications, and to expect to wait at least six weeks. He rang last Saturday to see how it was all going. A very helpful chap confirmed that it had been approved on 25 June and he should therefore expect payment into his bank this Friday, today. He was told the amount. There is no rebate this morning. He rang them at lunchtime,
  6. Hi, I have been on an emergency tax code since November, I am now on the correct code, however... I am owed approximately £1000 in tax, I spoke to HMRC and the lady was very distant in telling me anything. She told me that I was still down as being self employed and that I haven't filed a tax return for 4 years and I have a bill of £3400 (ish) all built up from late filing penalties etc. She was requesting information over the phone about when I was last self employed and so on, I couldn't give her the exact dates so she has asked me to call back with all the information, my con
  7. Hi I am claiming JSA and have been since January, I was in work up to claiming JSA. I am due a tax rebate at the end of the tax year (this weekend) and I am finding conflicting info on who or when I should get my refund. Will I get my refund automatically via the JSA route, or will I have to claim it via Revenue and Customs?
  8. Hi all, Not sure if I'm in the right section of the forum, if so can someone help please. I am looking for a little assistance on whether I might be entitled to a tax rebate and if so, how much roughly etc. I only worked 1st April to 5th August last year but I seemed to have paid more tax than I should have. In these months I probably earnt around 15k gross and from bank statements etc I seem to have taken home 10k. On this income however it seems I have paid around £1200-£1500 tax however as it seems to have been based on my previous years earnings of 37k gross. I only worked p
  9. Wondering if hubby is due a tax rebate. Up until August last year he was receiving Incapacity benefit and he also has an occupational health pension from a previous employer, on which he was taxed. He has now received a new tax code for April which says that he can receive £790 pension per month before any tax is deducted. My understanding is that the tax code has changed because he no longer receives IB. His pension is about £700 before tax. So as he was still paying tax of £100 per month on his pension from August to March, and not receiving IB, is it likely he will receive a tax rebate come
  10. Morning, This year is my first time self employed and first time doing a tax rebate form (online) I've searched for deadline's which seems to be October 2013, but most people are doing them after 5th April. Does this mean that it can be filed anywhere in between these dates? Thank you.
  11. Hiya- hopefully in the correct forum. My 21 year old son has a part time job in a supermarket - started in May 2012. He pays tax and NI. To date he has earned £9000, just. Can he claim a tax rebate, as I understand you can earn £8150 before you pay tax? Can he claim NI rebate also? Thanks in advance Vegus:wink:
  12. Fraudsters are stepping up efforts to trick people into handing over their personal details by bombarding them with fake tax rebate emails. HM Revenue and Customs has warned that almost 80,000 "phishing" emails were reported by taxpayers during 2012. The taxman said activity tends to increase around this time of year because taxpayers have just sent in their self-assessment returns. The emails, which often contain a link to a clone of HMRC's website, typically ask recipients to hand over their card and bank details, date of birth, national insurance

  14. hi guys just wondering if anyone else has come across my problem For 3 months i worked for a company that paid my wage directly to my bank account, the first months wage i wasnt taxed atall, on the 2nd month the double taxed me to make up for not paying tax the previous month... the comapny paid me directly into my bank, they worked out how much tax i should pay and then deducted it from my wage... then sent it to their accountant to pay my tax (2 weeks after i had been paid) then i got my wage slip.... it was clear they were dodgy. in the 2nd month of employment i had my tax code changed
  15. Hi, Sent a SAR to HBOS for mortgage details as I'm sure we had PPI and were forced to take their very expensive House Insurance in order to have mortgage accepted. Today they sent me a copy of loan agreement and statement for a loan I took in 2001. Nice suprise and had forgotten alol about this one! First question, which spreadsheet should I use as the loan hyas a small rebate halfway through so am unsure how to work out claim Second question, the letter says this is ALL available info they hold and are required by law to send. The mortgage was joint so maybe that's why alt
  16. Sorry cannot seem to post in the work forum. This is a warning for anyone considering using this company to claim your uniform tax rebate. Please please don't sign up to this company, it is so easy to do it yourself. Either ask your HR department or write a simple letter stating where you work your NI number and that you have washed your uniform at home for X number of years. Also state if you want tax back in a cheque or added to your tax code. This company have a facebook page, they block anyone who leaves comments like "do it yourself". They are hiding the truth from those who sign up. They
  17. Hi, received an offer from Halifax for 2 loans that rolled into each other but the account log I got from the SAR reads like gibberish. I can't identify if when they were refinanced and in the end settled what , if any , rebate I got. I need to check the accuracy of the offer as their breakdown does not correspond with ANY figures on the account log. Is there anyone who can transate the way they document the rebate please? I will try and scan the log and offer letter later.
  18. I have just been told that I have got compensation due to me from Egg for loan and credit card which is great news. However on it it says that due to PPI being cancelled or being included as part of the settlement figure when I finished the loan early they said they had given me a rebate already. I don;t remember them doing this but obviously I would have needed a final amount to owe when settling it early. However can you claim PPI on a rebate or is the figure they have now given me the final figure.
  19. Hi all, im looking for a bit of advice. My partner is self employed (as of 2011) and this was the first year he had to do his tax etc. He hired a accountent and he done all the work. It got worked out that he was owed just over £1000. His accountent sent it all of just after april 6th, he told my other half it would take about 2 weeks. 2 weeks went past and we heard nothing. i had been reading that HMRC are kind of slow so got my other half to call them up. They said it would be a week or so. At the beginning of may my other half called back his accountent and the accountent cal
  20. I overpaid my business rates by about £400 in January & needed to travel abroad for a few months. In January I was told that I should apply for a rebate upon my return and a cheque would be issued to me. I returned in May & applied for a rebate. 2 weeks later I get an email from the council saying they can't give me a rebate, because a cheque had been issued and cashed already. I was out of the country & at no point received a cheque. I'm not sure what to do. The council say they can't be of any more help and are considering the matter closed. Surely if a cheq
  21. We are currently living in a wonderful house, however weather damage caused the conservatory to begin leaking. It was reported in March last year, and on every agent inspection since then (every 3 months). As the year went on, the leak got worse and worse, eventually leading to the laminate floor coming up, and water damage to the electrics - the breakers to the house were tripping an average of 2-3 times every time it rained. When we told the agent that both the light switch and wall mounted induction heater were drenched, and that the light fitting had filled 3/4 with water, along with
