Q: Is Rebated Legitimate?
A: 100%, Absolutely. There's nothing you can't verify about us. We're UK based, our contact and company details are displayed in public and we respond to people every day via email & social media. Say hello if you want :)

Q: Is Rebated part of HMRC?
A: Absolutely NOT. We operate as an intermediary to assist people to reclaim tax they might be owed from HMRC. Unlike some businesses offering similar services, we don't try to trick people into thinking they are dealing with HMRC. We don't use similar logos, fonts or branding etc. We are 100% transparent regarding what we do and how much we charge. You can see this HERE.
Q: How much does Rebated charge?
A: We are totally transparent about how much we charge. We're happy to publish it.

You are under no obligations to use our services at all.
Q: How long does Rebated take to refund?
A: EVERYONE wants their tax refund NOW... however, how long it takes is somewhat of a "it depends" answer, sorry. Any other fixed statement would be misleading. Once we have cleared the funds from a successful Rebate from HMRC on your behalf and you have completed any legally required identity checks, we pay you what you are owed, minus our fee's, within 21 working days. Thats the bit we control and can guarantee. However, depending on how busy HMRC is, what else might be happening in the world or the complexity of your Rebated claim, it can take anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks for HMRC to process rebates and issue funds. We hope that is clear to understand and we do update customers frequently during the waiting period on claims as to the current status. We won't ever go silent on you.
Q: How do I get paid by Rebated?
A: We issue repayment to Rebated customers via Cheque, or via PAYPAL. We won't ever ask for your personal bank details so you know you can trust Rebated completely.
Q: How do I contact Rebated?
A: It's SUPER EASY. To make a tax refund claim and use our services you can GET REBATED HERE. If you want to contact us for anything else, you can do that HERE.
Q: Can I cancel my Rebated claim?
A: Short answer is YES, but only before we process and submit your Rebated claim to HMRC. After that point, NO, you can't. You can view our T's & C's HERE.
Q: What is a redundancy tax refund?
A: A redundancy tax refund is a refund for overpaid tax as a result of someone losing their job part way through the tax year. Simply put, the way you are taxed assumes you will earn the same amount for the whole tax year. If suddenly, you stop getting paid because you've lost your job, the rate of tax you have been paying via your pay packet each month could be way too high, meaning you've overpaid tax on your earnings to date. Thats what we find out and get you Rebated for without having to wait about. If you start work again soon after losing your job we also make sure you are not being over taxed on your new salary.
Q: Will I have to pay tax on any redundancy payout I’ve had?
A: The short answer is yes, probably. It all depends how much you've been paid, and how your employer has processed any redundancy payments/settlements for tax purposes and also how they have accounted for unpaid holiday, bonuses and other employment related benefits when calculating your final payment. We sort all that out. We check with HMRC to ensure the right amount of tax has been paid and if you are owed any tax, we'll get it back for you!
Q: How does a redundancy tax refund work?
A: If you've lost your job and there's going to be a period where you are not working, we can help claim back any over paid taxes you are owed by HMRC. We'll ask them to calculate your tax position at the point your employment ceases and for any overpayment of tax to be refunded straight away. That money is better off in your pocket now, right?
Q: Will a redundancy tax claim be difficult?
A: Nope. We handle everything for you. The main details you need are your National Insurance number, your PAYE employers reference number and the date you stopped work. Everything you need is usually on your PAYE slips from your employer and if you have already been issued a P45, thats always handy too. Other than that, our process is pain free and quick.
Q: How much is a redundancy tax claim worth?
A: Potentially £THOUSANDS. It all depends on how much you earn and when in the tax year you lose your job. Our average refund amount is over £3000 so get in touch today and we can get the process started for you.
Q: Why should I make a redundancy tax refund claim now?
A: Assuming that you have not simply walked into a brand new job straight away, chances are you are owed money for overpaid tax. It all boils down to whether you want that money back, ASAP, into your pocket, to help cushion the blow of losing your job? or, are you happy to wait it out and let HMRC get around to working out if they owe you money? If you did manage to find a new job after some time off work, there is a very good chance you are still owed a decent refund as often people are put on emergency tax codes at new jobs or p45's are issued late or incorrectly. Let us handle everything.
Q: Am I eligible for a redundancy tax refund?
A: If you've been out of work, or were out of work for 4 weeks or more then YES, there is a very good chance you are eligible. You cannot apply for a refund now if you’re:receiving or will receive other taxable income such as a works pension from your old employer before the end of the tax year OR claiming: Jobseeker’s Allowance (unless you’re claiming for National Insurance credits only), taxable Incapacity Benefit, Employment and Support Allowance, Carer’s Allowance. We will qualify you during our application process so don't worry, it's all incredibly simple.
Q: What is the Marriage Allowance?
A: Marriage Allowance lets you transfer £1,260 of your Personal Allowance to your husband, wife or civil partner. This reduces their tax by up to £252 in the tax year (6 April to 5 April the next year). The maximum lifetime value of this allowance is £10,000 so it's something well worth claiming if you qualify.
Q: Am I eligible to claim this allowance?
A: You can benefit from Marriage Allowance if all the following apply:
  • You’re married or in a civil partnership
  • One of you does not pay Income Tax or your income is below your Personal Allowance (usually £12,570)
  • One of you pays Income Tax at the basic rate, which usually means their income is between £12,571 and £50,270 before they receive Marriage Allowance
You cannot claim Marriage Allowance if you BOTH pay tax at the basic rate eg earning over £12,571, or, any one of you pays tax at the higher rate eg earns over £50,270   You cannot claim Marriage Allowance if you’re living together but you’re not married or in a civil partnership. If you’re in Scotland, one of you must pay the starter, basic or intermediate rate, which usually means their income is between £12,571 and £43,662. It will not affect your application for Marriage Allowance if you or your partner:
  • Are currently receiving a pension
  • Live abroad - as long as you get a Personal Allowance.
If you or your partner were born before 6 April 1935, you might benefit more as a couple by applying for Married Couple’s Allowance instead. You cannot get Marriage Allowance and Married Couple’s Allowance at the same time.
Q: How much is a Marriage Allowance claim worth?
A: Marriage tax allowance for the 2021/22 tax year is worth up to £252. If you're eligible, you'll also get the tax break each year going forward up to a lifetime value of £10,000 In addition to the current year's allowance, if you have been married long enough, we'll backdate your claim by up to four tax years too (currently 2017/18, 2018/19, 2019/20 and 2020/21). The amounts for each year are worth up to: 2021/22 – £252, 2020/21 – £250, 2019/20 – £250, 2018/19 – £238, 2017/18 – £230. This means that if you claim for this tax year and backdate the maximum four years, your refund will be worth up to £1,220.
Q: How long do I/we need to have been married for?
A: If you are a newlywed or been married for 20 years or more, it doesn't really matter. If this is your first year of marriage you can claim this years allowance worth just over £250 back and the allowance will be automatically applied moving forwards. The most we can claim back is 4 years worth so if you've been married over 4 years then the maximum we can get back is worth £1220 right now and the yearly allowance will automatically be applied moving forwards too.
Q: How to apply for or claim the Marriage Allowance?
A: At Rebated we handle multiple tax refunds and allowances people are able to claim including the Marriage Allowance. Many people have no idea they are eligbible for money back off HMRC until we tell them. Simply use the Rebated Refund Checker above to see how much money you could be entitled to.
Q: How do I know if I’ve overpaid tax via PAYE?
A: You can wait 6 months after the end of the current tax year for HMRC to work it out and tell you if they think they owe you money. OR, you can let us help you work it out and get any money owed back to you quickly as well as getting your tax code adjusted so you are paying the right amount of tax!
Q: How is it possible I’ve overpaid tax?
A: According to Quickbooks, 33% of employees do not check their pay slip monthly to see if they are paying the correct tax. Overpaying tax can happen for many reasons. These can include: changing jobs, human error in HR or Accounts, You only had a job for part of the tax year, You're a student and only work during the holidays, Other income you get taxed on has reduced, You stopped working or your circumstances changed eg went from full time to part time, you got a pay cut or reduced income because of overtime etc.
Q: Won’t HMRC just refund me automatically?
A: In theory, yes, but, you have to wait 6 months till about September or October following the end of the current tax year and thats assuming the HMRC automated system spots any error. Using Rebated means a manual review of your tax account and we ensure this is backdated up to 4 years meaning that if there has been an error and you've overpaid tax, we get you the maximim tax rebate possible.
Q: How much is a overpaid tax claim worth?
A: At the moment our average Rebate amount received from HMRC is just over £500. Specifically what you might be entitled to depends on your individual employment and tax situation. This amount is a guide only. You could be owed more, less or nothing at all. However, at Rebated, we request HMRC check regardless, just in case they are able to find any money owed to you.
Q: I had a PPI payout before April 5th 2016, do I qualify?
A: Nope, sorry. The Personal Savings Allowance that came into force on 6th April 2016 is what allows you to claim the 20% tax deducted back. Payouts on PPI before this date do not qualify. However, you may qualify for another tax refund or allowance we help customers with. Use our Refund Checker tool to see what else you might qualify for.
Q: I had a PPI payout after April 5th 2016, do I qualify?
A: Yes! Although you need to be a basic rate tax payer or lower in the tax year you are claiming Overpaid PPI Tax in eg a 20% tax payer and roughly £50k a year earnings or less. If you are above this you might end up owing HMRC, YIKES. We double check your earnings during our claim process to make sure you qualify so don't worry.
Q: I was a 40% tax payer in the year I got my PPI payout, do I qualify?
A: Um, Sorry, Nope. If you made a claim for overpaid PPI tax and you are in this tax bracket you'd basically be saying to HMRC that you owe them money. Obviously you are a proper and decent citizen so this will already have been taken care of. Our claims process checks peoples earnings for any refunds or allowances they are trying to claim to ensure they qualify, so don't worry. If you tell us you earn too much, we won't process that claim for any year you earned too much.
Q: I’ve had multiple PPI payouts, can I claim for all of them?
A: Yes, just provide us the relevant information we ask for during the PPI Tax refund claim process. Simples.
Q: Multiple people in my family have had PPI payouts, can we all claim?
A: Yes, although each of you need to claim individually. If your claim relates to a joint policy or payout, your claim will be portioned for your part only.
Q: How much is my PPI Tax claim worth?
A: Up to about £800 to £1000 depending on your individual earnings, tax situation and how many PPI Payouts you have had.
Q: How far back can I claim?
A: We can claim back the last 4 tax years on any applicable tax refund or allowance claim. After that, the opportunity is gone forever unless in very special and exceptional circumstances.
Q: What if I don’t have my PPI paperwork anymore?
A: No worry. We can request this from banks & lenders on your behalf. However we can also use estimated figures.
Q: What is the work from home allowance?
A: If your employer requires you to work from home, you've always been able to claim for increased costs, eg, heat or electricity, for the specific time at home. Yet during the 2020 lockdown, HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) launched a 'microservice' which, even if you only needed to work from home for a day, allowed you to get a WHOLE year's tax relief. That applies for the 2021/22 tax year too – meaning many are due TWO years' relief, worth roughly £250.
Q: Even if I worked just 1 day at home I can claim?
A: Yes. Really.
Q: Can other people in my household claim too?
A: Yes. Any number of people in the same household are entitled to claim as long as they were required to work from home during the pandemic for some time, as little as 1 day counts to qualify for the entire annual allowance.
Q: How do I claim the work from home allowance?
A: Check with the Rebated refund checker to see if if you qualify and also what else you might be entitled to claim for that you didn't know about. The Rebated mission is to put more money back into your pockets so we try find other allowances and refunds you can make at the same time so that your claim is worth even more!
