How far back can I claim?

  • Current legislation in the UK says you can go back up to four Tax years when claiming a Tax rebate. This means at the current moment in time you can make a claim for the following periods:
    • Year ended 5th April 2021
    • Year ended 5th April 2022
    • Year ended 5th April 2023
    • Year ended 5th April 2024


    Effectively this means you can claim Tax relief from 6th April 2020.

    Over such a long period of time wage slips and p60s can be lost or misplaced. This isn’t a problem as you have lots of ways to obtain this information.


    • Contact your current/previous employers as they are legally obliged to keep your records going back 6 years and because of GDPR if your request that information they have to provide it to you.


    • You could log into your government gateway which is easy to set up if you have never done this.


    • Contact HMRC on 0300 200 3300 and request that they post out to you a tax history letter which usually arrives in 10 working days from when you request it from them and this tax history letter will go back 4 years.

How long does a tax claim take?

How long a security tax claim takes to come back depends on two things:

  • How fast you can get the required information to ourselves
  • How busy HMRC are, depends a lot on what time of the year it is.

The sooner you start a claim process, the better as it can tax 8-12 weeks for HMRC to process a tax refund.

As deadlines apply for making claims, we advise you get in touch as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
