    Recommended Posts

    Hi, I sent my hmm what ever form off a while back to claim tax back in the UK. Just wondered if anyone can say how long it took them to get theirs back?

    it took several months to get ours sorted as husband missed something on his form so that crossed the sea several times!. also when we finally got the cheque it then had to be sent back to the uk to confirm funds (or something like that anyway!) and then got sent back to the bank (anz) but it was a nice little surprise to find we got something off the uk governement as that had never happened before :jiggy:

    took mine about 5 weeks to come through, and the money was paid direct into my bank account. if you take the form to your local tax office before you come over they will check through it and make sure its all correct before sending it off.

    Now that would have been the sensible thing to do but unfortunately I never got around to it.

     

    It's good advice and hopefully others can follow it.

     

    Thanks,

    Someone in my Dentist surgery said to me the other day that I can claim back SIX YEARS of UK tax when I leave...now I just laughed and answered something sarcastic but looking at this thread is there a grain of truth in it?!

    I'm claiming back the tax I earned from working only part of a year and it's calculated on you working the whole year. Don't think you can claim tax back from a longer period but maybe there are circumstances that permit this.

    I think it goes something like....back over there your tax is calculated over what you earn over 12 months/52 weeks..if you leave before the end of that time you would have paid too much tax....as you have not been working for the full period.....

     

    I hope this makes sense....if i am wrong then i am pretty sure someone will be along to out me right...lol

    Correct, the tax year actually runs from April 6th so certainly worth contacting them to claim.

     

    Form P85 is what you need, this should help HM Revenue & Customs: Residence and domicile issues

    Andy (or someone else) maybe able to add the link for the form that you use if still in the UK - I think it's a different one.

    can you do this on any visa eg. 457 or is it only once you have achieved PR?

    I would think you can claim it back as you won't be in the country - you certainly would be able to after the financial year.

     

    Have a look at the forms.
