Tax Return Compliance, Preparation & Filing
If you have overpaid tax to HMRC, you can complete a tax return and once it is processed you will receive a tax rebate.
You can still claim tax back if you have not completed a tax return, just phone HMRC and they can refund tax back into your next pay.
A tax rebate is a refund of taxes that have been overpaid.
On average, a CIS refund claims can take between 8-10 weeks. It depends on how long it takes HMRC to process the CIS refund claim.
It can take HMRC up to 12 weeks to process your tax refund claim and can take another 5 days to 5 weeks before you get the tax back.
You will receive a P800 letter from HMRC if you are owed a tax rebate, yet you will not necessarily receive this money without applying for it.
You can make a claim that covers several years of overpaid tax.
In the event that you have been unemployed for four weeks or more.
Step 1 - To claim a tax refund you will need to file form P50. This will have to be sent to HMRC, you will also need to send parts 2 and 3 of your P45. Step 2 - It is sensible to call HMRC before you file the P50 form in case you need to provide any extra information. HMRC's contact number is 0300 200 3300 Step 3 - to download the P50 form you can visit GOV.UK.

However, the FREA (flat rate expense allowance) is currently set at £60 for uniform maintenance.
So if you are a basic rate taxpayer, you can claim back 20% of that £60, which is £12. Higher rate taxpayers can claim back 40% of the £60 which is £24.
It usually takes HMRC between 4 and 12 weeks to issue a refund once you have made your claim.
