Tax Code Review Service

Published: 30/03/2017

Over 70% of Police Federation members have been given the wrong tax code by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) at some time in the last 4 years. As a result they will have paid too much tax without realising, with many still paying too much right now!

These are the findings from over 9,000 Police Federation members who have had their tax codes checked by the UK’s leading tax code experts.

Your employer is using the tax code HMRC sent them to work out how much tax to take off your pay, so it is very important they have the right code. But, under HMRC rules it’s up to YOU to make sure the code your employer has used each year is actually right.

Fortunately, if you are one of the 70% that have paid too much tax, you can still get your money back from HMRC. However, few taxpayers know enough about tax to spot errors in their past or present tax codes, or want to try and speak directly with HMRC.

With this in mind, The Federation is pleased to offer all members a professional review of their tax codes. Provided by the UK’s leading independent tax code experts, The Tax Refund Company, it will help you recover any tax you have overpaid in the last 4 years.

So what do you need to know?

  • Over 9,000 Police Federation members have already used the service
  • You will receive a comprehensive review of your current and last 4 years tax codes
  • Unless you receive a refund, the review will be completely FREE
  • Refunds for Police Federation members typically average around £185 each
  • If they discover any errors and are successful in securing a tax refund, they will send you 62p from every £1 they get back. (Min. fee £38**)
  • Where a new tax code is required, they will arrange this as well
  • In the rare event they find you owe more tax, they will only inform you. They are NOT required to inform HMRC
