To be due a tax rebate you need to have paid tax in the year you are making a claim.
Depending on the type of claim you are making, different information and/or records are often needed by HMRC. Some claims can be processed using only your national insurance number but others, for example travel expense claims, will benefit from having records and receipts provided with them. Some claimants will need to provide further information for example those claiming a left or leaving the UK tax rebate claim will need to provide a P85 form and, wherever possible, P60 and P45 forms.
Whilst you are well within your rights to contact HMRC directly to make your tax rebate claim, it is often advisable to use a professional service, especially for those who have complex tax affairs or are trying to make claims without records, as tax rebate claims can be time consuming and confusing. On average it takes between 4 and 12 weeks for a tax rebate claim to be processed however it can be longer and is the timescale is ultimately decided by HMRC.
