If you’re thinking this, it’s worth looking at what options you’ve got, apart from using us.
Tip 1 – Check for hidden charges – things like VAT being added, cheque handling fees, admin charges etc. You may have to read the “small print” very carefully to find them but they’ll be there!
Other companies do not do this, they simply get you to fill out a form and then forward it to HMRC without checking if you are even due a claim. They are literally taking their fee for forwarding your mail – nothing else.
This is a very risky approach and can lead to clients owing HMRC money rather than getting it back.
Tip 3 – Check what happens if you end up owing tax – Again it’ll be in the small print, you’ll find no other company takes any responsibility for this, simply because all they’ve done is forward your mail without checking anything.
Here att The Tax Refund Company we guarantee our work in 2 ways –
- If you get a bigger tax refund elsewhere (for the same period we have reviewed) we will give you the difference and
- If you end up owing tax as a direct result of our work we will pay any tax owed as a result of our error.
No one else can or will offer you this!
TIP 4 – Check who they work with – We are the “Approved Provider” for a number of large Trade Unions and professional bodies such as The Police Federations and Royal College of Nursing as well as major employers, benefit providers and payroll companies. Each of these organisations goes through a stringent process before approving partner companies like ourselves. If a company has not been approved by these types of organisations, ask yourself why.
