Have you been taxed for your vacation job? If you’re a Student, you will more than likely be able to claim the tax back.

If you have a job when you’re a student you may need to pay Income Tax and National Insurance.

You have to pay:

Your employer will usually deduct Income Tax and National Insurance from your wages through Pay As You Earn (PAYE).

If you’ve paid tax and stop working part way through the tax year you may be able to claim a refund.

Use HMRC’s tax checker to find out if you might have paid too much tax, or contact HMRC.

Fill in form P50 if you’ve stopped working or if you’re not going to work for at least 4 weeks, for example if you’re retired, still looking for a job or returning to study.

If you leave the UK to live abroad, there’s a different way to claim a tax refund on your UK income.

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) will normally refund you within:

  • 5 weeks of processing your claim – if you’re expecting a cheque (or ‘payable order’)
  • 5 working days of processing your claim – if you’re expecting a payment into your bank account

It can take up to 25 working days after your claim if your refund is for tax taken from your pay or pension and you have not got a P800 tax calculation.

If you do not get your refund

You should wait 5 weeks after making an online claim and 6 weeks after making a postal claim before contacting HMRC about the payment.

If you would like to discuss any of this further then please get in touch 0116 2423400 or info@torrwaterfield.co.uk
