Don’t Miss Out On A Tax Refund!

By DPF Admin1st March 2021Area Updates, Latest News

Many Defence Police Federation members could have paid too much tax without realising it.

On average, 1 in 3 employed taxpayers in the UK have paid too much tax in the past 4 years because HMRC has sent their employer the wrong tax code. Unfortunately, your employer would not realise if this happened. HMRC rules also mean it is your responsibility to tell them if they have given you the wrong code.

To make sure you have only paid the tax you actually needed to pay in the last 4 years, Defence Police Federation has arranged with The Tax Refund Company, the UK’s leading tax refund specialists, to provide all members with a FREE comprehensive online tax assessment.

The average amount taxpayers get back after using this service is £206, although some lower paid taxpayers have had over £5,000 back in the past year.

For over 27 years, The Tax Refund Company has provided a free tax review to more than 2 million taxpayers, many of them Trade Union members, recovering over £126 million in overpaid tax– all of it on a NO REFUND – NO FEEbasis.

Very few people think they will get a tax refund before they use this service. However, many get a nice surprise when a refund arrives in the post a few months later.

As a Defence Police member, we would like to give you the opportunity to take advantage of this excellent service. The main points to note are…

  • The service will ensure you have not paid more tax than absolutely necessary
  • You cannot lose by applying – No tax refund means there is no fee
  • For every £1 of overpaid tax you get back from HMRC using the service, you keep 62p (min. fee £38*)
  • In the very rare case they discover you have not paid enough tax, they will only inform you, not HMRC or your employer.

This is your hard-earned money so do not let HMRC keep it.

*If you get back less than £38, the minimum fee will be reduced accordingly so you can never owe more than you got back
