1/3 of employed people in the UK are eligible for a tax rebate
You could be owed £1000s
U-Tax provides a professional and fast tax rebate service for employed people. Employed people are eligible to claim a tax rebate on a variety of work related expenses, however the vast majority are not aware that they are able to do so.
If you think you meet any of the criteria below, then you are more than likely due a tax rebate. You will be able to claim for the current tax year and the previous four years.
All you need to do is fill out your details and we’ll give you a call back to get your claim started.
Do you wear a uniform to work or clothing that has either a company logo on or maybe even specific clothing like a nurse’s tunic? If you do and your employer does not provide laundry facilities then you may be eligible for a tax refund. Even if the uniform is provided by your employer you may still be eligible. Even better news is that you can claim overpaid tax for the previous four years!
If you use your own car for company business and you employer doesn’t reimburse you, you could be eligible to claim your car mileage allowance from the HMRC.
Whilst some employers do provide mileage relief for employees, it varies from company to company. For the current tax year you can claim back 45p per mile for business, and we can go back up to four years.
Our average mileage claim is £1500.
If you purchase your own tools or specialist equipment or clothing for work then you can claim your tools tax allowance from the HMRC. If your employer doesn’t provide any compensation for the purchase of tools then then HMRC allows you to claim back the tax on these products. We can claim your tools tax allowance for up to four years previously. Our tools department can also deal with claiming professional subscription fees and if you work away from home occasionally you can can for any meals, hotel bills and business phone calls if your employer doesn’t provide you with any compensation.
Our average tools claim is £1300.
If your job requires you to work from home occasionally,then you could be entitled as much as £676
Whilst we can claim for any business expenses incurred when you work from home such as extra heating or electric, HMRC does not allow any domestic expenses to be claimed such as mortgage or council tax.
E-Petition: Unclaimed tax rebate for over four years
Dedicated to helping our customers claim back as much tax as possible, we have recently submitted an online e-petition calling for the timeframe that you are eligible to claim tax back to be extended to the initial six years, as opposed to the current four years.
If you are a UK taxpayer and are eligible to claim a tax rebate, the previous time frame to claim tax back from HMRC used to be up to six years. HMRC recently reduced this to just four years. However interestingly, HMRC can still go back up to six years, or even 20 years, if YOU have not paid enough tax.
Tax rebate on tools for employed individuals
Many professions such as mechanics, builders, hairdressers, chefs and many more are required to purchase their own tools for their job. If you have purchased tools for your job you may be entitled to claim tax relief on the amounts you have spent.
HMRC allows tax relief on tools or equipment purchased for work use, and specialist clothing required to complete your job. To claim this you can’t be reimbursed by your employer. Flat Rate
The tax relief can be claimed by a flat rate deduction, this is a nationally agreed amount with HMRC. After claiming back tool expenses with U-Tax, your tax code will also alter meaning that you will be paying less tax in future years unless your circumstances change. You can claim for the last 4 years.
Tax Relief for Specialist Clothing
HMRC also allows tax relief for purchases of protective clothing for example boots and gloves. To qualify for this specific tax rebate the item must not be supplied by the employer and the cost of the item must not be reimbursed by the employer. The claim can only be made for replacement, repairing or cleaning of the item.
What happens if I have claimed previously?
A tools tax claim can be made every year, therefore if you claimed in the previous tax year 2011-12, you can now claim for 2012-13.
What U-Tax can do for you?
We will submit your claim for you and deal with all relevant paperwork. We provide a quick, professional & hassle-free service and will deal with all aspects of submitting claim, liaising with the HMRC on your behalf so you don’t need to worry about a thing.

CIS Tax Rebate
Do you work within the construction industry? We discuss why you may be entitled to a CIS Tax Rebate and how U-Tax can help you claim it.
What is a CIS Tax Rebate?
If you are self-employed and work within the Construction Industry you may be working under the CIS (Construction Industry Scheme). The Construction Industry Scheme was introduced to prevent the ‘cash in hand’ culture, and as a result workers are taxed 20% or 30% on their entire income. This often means that individuals on the CIS overpay tax and are therefore due a CIS Tax Rebate.
How can I claim my CIS Tax Rebate?
As workers under the Construction Industry Scheme are self-employed, they are required to complete an annual Self-Assessment or a CIS Tax Return. This is the opportunity to declare your income, claim for expenses and claim back your CIS Tax Rebate. We understand that the thought of completing HMRC’s complicated tax forms is daunting, that’s why U-Tax can do it for you.
What is the average CIS Tax Rebate?
The amount of your CIS Tax rebate does entirely depend on your total income for the year, however our average CIS Tax Rebate is £1500. By contacting U-Tax we will not only complete your self- assessment/CIS tax return but we will also claim for all of your allowable expenses, increasing your rebate!.
How can U-Tax help me with my CIS Tax Rebate?
If you are currently working under the Construction Industry Scheme or have been previously, we advise you contact us to claim your CIS Tax Rebate. After a brief discussion with our team of accountants, we will identify the information we need to complete and submit your self-assessment. Our competitively priced fee of just £100+VAT will ensure that your tax is minimised and your profits are maximised. You can sit back, relax and wait for your CIS Tax Rebate.

With the end of the current tax year looming, tax payers are being encouraged to claim back any overpaid tax from the HMRC.

• You changed from full to part-time working or became self-employed.
• You were only employed for part of the year.
• You have had more than one job at once.

Tax Rebate Phishing Scam
Last year alone, HM Revenue & Customs closed down more than 500 fraudulent websites which had promised tax payers a substantial tax rebate in exchange for their personal, credit card and bank details.
The websites had been using a series of emails to attract tax payers to a clone of HMRC’s genuine website to trick them in to submitting their details. Fraudsters then try to take money from the account using the details provided
It should be noted that HMRC will only inform an individual of their tax refund by post and will not use emails or telephone calls as a means on contact. As a result HMRC advise customers the following:
- To check the advice published at the following link to see if the email they have received is listed: Security – HMRC website
- To ensure that they forward any suspicious emails to HMRC and then remove the email from their computer
- To refrain from opening any attachments or links contained in suspicious emails
- The success of the scam may be due to the complicating and often time consuming process of applying for a tax rebate, resulting in many people searching the internet for websites offering an easier solution.
Therefore it is important that if you wish to use an agency to help you claim your tax rebate, you use a reputable company such as ourselves, who are registered by HMRC.

Can I claim?

You Wash Your Own Uniform – Laundry allowance is intended to cover the cost of the washing of your uniform. Even though as a labourer you may not regard what you wear to carry out your job as uniform, the HMRC defines uniform as any specialist clothing that you are required to wear by your employer. If you have been washing this clothing at your own expense, you can claim it back from the HMRC in the form of a uniform tax rebate. We here at U-Tax have helped our customers reclaim £1000’s back in the form of uniform rebates.

Tax Rebates for Construction Workers – How You Could Save £100′s
Are you a construction worker? If so, you could be entitled to over £1000 in the form of a tax rebate.
How You Can Claim
As a construction worker you are obligated by law to be registered under the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS), which will require you to annually deduct the amount of tax you owe from your
gross earnings, before submitting it to the HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) in the form of a self-assessment tax return. However, this often leads to miscalculations in the amount of tax you pay, and also doesn’t account for any of your expenses, meaning that you could potentially be owed hundreds or even thousands in tax relief.
To claim a tax rebate you must first register for the CIS scheme by following these simple instructions.
Register for self-employment with the HMRC via their website, or by calling them on 0845 915 4515 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 0845 915 4515 FREE end_of_the_skype_highlighting. You will then receive a letter containing your Unique Tax Reference number.
After registering with the CIS, you will then be required to submit annual tax returns to the HMRC, which we here at U-Tax can help you with.
How U-Tax Can Help You
Registering with the CIS, completing your own self-assessments and organising your expenses can be extremely stressful, which is why so many construction workers lose a large amount of their annual earnings to the taxman due to making errors in their tax returns, or by failing to claim for tax rebates. Fortunately, our team at U-Tax have helped our clients retrieve £1000s back from the HMRC in the past, and we will hopefully do the same for you.
U-Tax can complete your self-assessment tax return for you and work out your expenses, deducting them from the tax you are due to pay, ensuring that you pay no more money to the HMRC than that which you owe them.
How Much Could You Save?
The average tax rebate we have acquired for construction workers is £1500 per year and, seeing as you are eligible to claim tax relief for the past four years of your employment, the amount you could receive from the HMRC may pleasantly surprise you.
The specialist software used by our team of experienced professionals will promptly calculate how much money you are entitled to receive, with U-Tax then completing all the relevant forms for you before submitting them to the HMRC, ensuring that all you need to do is wait for the cheque in the post containing your tax refund.
U-Tax understands that the reason why many individuals are forced to endure the stress of completing their own tax returns/claiming their tax rebates is due to the large prices charged by many professional agencies. This is why we offer our services are as affordable as they are efficient, with us charging a flat rate fee of £100 + VAT, or 10% of the rebate you receive (whichever is cheaper).
