About Us

Getting Tax Refunds For Ordinary Taxpayers For Over 30 Years.

The Tax Refund Company has been helping ordinary taxpayers check their tax codes for errors and claim tax refunds where due since 1994. With over 3.5 million taxpayers having applied for a tax code review and with a reputation for leaving no stone unturned in our search for overpaid tax, we’ve grown to become the UK’s leading professional tax refund specialists.

The No.1 Tax Refund Company

Our No. 1 position is recognised by employers, Trade Unions, Police Federations, Professional Bodies and debt management companies across Britain, with more than 700 recommending our service to their employees and members over the last 30 years.

Not to be confused with other rebate companies offering a “cheap and cheerful” service looking for the obvious errors whilst ignoring those more complicated and time consuming errors, we take the view our clients deserve to get back every £ they’re entitled to and it’s our job to help them get it, no matter what it takes.

1 In 2 Clients Get A Tax Refund

Over 1 in 2* clients receive a refund when they give our experts the opportunity to review their tax codes. With our cast iron “Largest Refund Guarantee”, we’ll make certain that if you’ve paid too much tax, you will get every £ your entitled to.

We’ll make sure we get back every £ HMRC owes you, which is not something you can be certain of when contacting HMRC yourself! Even if you manage to get through to HMRC, unless you already understand PAYE tax rules, you can’t be certain you’ve been given the correct answers. It’s the same if you manage to get a refund – you will never know it’s the correct amount unless you have someone on your side who knows exactly what they’re doing and with your interests at heart.

We know tax is confusing – given the PAYE tax code guide is over 22,000 pages long, it’s not something you’re likely to understand any time soon, so we’ve done our best to make it simple, quick and easy to use our service  – just answer a few basic questions in our quick initial review to get started.  

We’re On Your Side

We’ll provide you with a totally independent review – remember we’re on your side and you only pay us if we help you get your money back, otherwise it’s totally FREE.

Where you get a tax refund, our fees are clear and simple – if you get up to £100 back, we charge £38. If you get over £100, we charge 38p for each £1 we recover. If for any reason your refund is under £38, you won’t need to pay us any more than we got back for you.

We won’t charge you anything on refunds we get back for a current tax year that are paid directly into your wages – we’ll let you keep the whole refund – so you could get a refund and pay us nothing. You also won’t need to pay us a fee for any money you save after we’ve completed your review and corrected your tax code.

And, if in the incredibly unlikely situation you get a tax bill from HMRC as a direct result of our review, we’ll pay the bill for you. See our “Underpayment Guarantee

Average Tax Refund Of £204

Our refunds average £203.79** each, but there are thousands of clients who’ve ended up getting back as much as £14,974 and every single one of them started out right where you are now, wondering whether it was worth doing. After all, they were “on PAYE and their employer looked after their tax” so why would they have paid too much!

So if you want the chance to put your money back where it belongs, in your pocket rather than in HMRC’s, it takes just a couple of minutes to get started. It could turn out to be the best investment of time you’ve ever made.
