Why Do I Need to Check My Tax Code?

– Your tax code tells your employer how much tax to take off your wages.

– HMRC sends out a new tax code at least once each year.

– Your employer has to use the tax code they’re sent, and they’ve no idea if it’s right or not.

– It’s your job to check your employer’s got the right code.

– Over 1 in 3 of the tax code reviews we complete end up with our customers getting a tax refund, so it’s clear every taxpayer should check their tax code.

If you think you may be one of seven million taxpayers missing out on valuable tax refunds visit our website for a hassle free review.

#Tax Refund News – HMRC Warns of Landline Scams Threatening Households

 

As a responsible financial services provider, we feel it is our duty to make our customers and the public at large aware of the risks that can exist and mistakes that can be avoided.

Dealing with your tax refund is something we take very seriously and so too is the trust you place in us to help you achieve that.

HMRC this week have released a warning to UK householders around the use of landline phone calls. where the caller claims to be from HMRC.

These unscrupulous callers then attempt to steal money from taxpayers, often with worrying threats of imprisonment or bailiffs.

Phone scams often target the elderly and vulnerable using HMRC’s brand as it is well known and adds credibility to a fraudster’s call.

How Do I Know if it’s Fraudulent Call?

Fraudsters will call your landline claiming to be from reputable organisations such as HMRC. Contact like this is designed to convince you to hand over valuable personal details or your money.

Don’t assume anyone who calls you is who they say they are. If a person calls and asks you to make a payment, log in to an online account or offers you a deal, be cautious and seek advice.

HMRC will only ever call you asking for payment on a debt that you are already aware of, either having received a letter about it.

Here at The Tax Refund Company, we work closely with HMRC on your behalf.

Genuine organisations like ourselves and HMRC will never contact you out of the blue to ask for your PIN, password or bank details.

If you think you’ve been the victim of a fraud, you can report it to ActionFraud on 0300 123 2040.

Don’t forget, one of the best ways of staying safe is to always use a genuine company, like ourselves here at The Tax Refund Company.

#QnAMonday – “Why did another tax refund service tell me to post my paperwork to postcode ‘BX9 1AS’ “?

Ahh, imitation – they do say it’s the highest form of flattery!

While that’s nice to know, we do see a number of customers who’ve applied to other companies for their tax refund – only to be left high and dry… just take a look at some of the comments we get and try and help with!

There are a number of things you can look out for, to ensure that you’re getting the high level of service and detailed tax review that we offer here at The Tax Refund Company…

Firstly, be aware of any company that asks you to post or return your paperwork to any address with the postcode BX9 1AZ.

This address is HMRC itself, so all they’re doing is have you post your own paperwork to HMRC, for them to do the work!! 🙁   >:(    Needless to say, HMRC isn’t very keen on applications like that…

Of course, these companies won’t tell you they’re doing this because they want you to think they’re actually doing some work for you to justify their fee.

It’s a very easy trick to miss if you don’t know what to look for, especially as it will be very well disguised.
