What reason would HMRC have to investigate a refund?
Usually, HMRC will select people at random and they do this type of spot-check to make sure that any tax refund that is being applied for is follow the correct rules and procedures.
Sometimes the HMRC rules and tax regulations change and they want to make sure that companies and individuals are following the rules correctly and the way there were intended to be followed.
There are a few reasons and signs that HMRC looks out for when assessing a tax refund which could lead them to suspect fraud or other problems.
What are the reasons that would cause a HMRC inspection to be successful?
The main reason for this happening is when the information used to calculate your refund is incorrect or incomplete
Usually, the problems come from people not realising the following points:
- Whether a workplace was temporary or permanent or if you are a mobile worker or not.
- If you had “non-taxable expenses”.
- If we were not informed about benefits like child benefits.
- If you had other sources of income that need to be reported but we were not informed about this. Example: Rental income or second job
- It’s extremely important to retain the proof of expenses like receipts for at least 12 months after the refund calculation was done.
It’s our job to help you with these complex rules, though. That’s why if something slips through the net, we’ll cover it.
Remember – we need you to keep as many records as you can so we can prove your claim to HMRC if they ask more questions.
Am I Due Any Tax Back?
Most workers, whether employed or self-employed may be due a tax rebate for work-related items, expenses or because they have paid too much tax. HMRC do not know everyone’s individual circumstances, and it is up to the taxpayer to contact HMRC to see if they are entitled to any tax relief.
Other reasons for a tax refund may include pension payments, redundancy payments, interest from a savings account, PPI, or UK income if you are living abroad.
All claims for tax refunds and rebates are reviewed on a case by case basis. Use our tax claim form and answer a few simple questions to see if you could be entitled to make a claim.
