Jackson Headley - Security
Jackson – 38, has been working in the security trade for three years now and it was only last year when his colleague notified him of QuickRebates and the ability to claim Tax relief on travelling costs. This was not something Jackson was aware of, and thought that employees of all kinds could not claim back anything from HMRC.
QuickRebates quickly got to work with Jackson’s claim. First analysing his working contracts and the mileage he carries out each week using his own car when travelling between different sites.
It was immediately apparent that Jackson was entitled to Overpayment Relief and that he was due a sizeable Tax repayment.
- Jackson Headley
- Aid Provided
- Overpayment Tax Relief for travelling between temporary workplaces
- Repayment Time
- 2 weeks
- Tax Rebate
This was a fairly straight forward case for HMRC to agree based on the following facts:
- Jackson was required to attend various clients properties for security assessment
- He was not paid mileage allowance from his employer
- The trips were neither frequent or regular in pattern
- Substantial mileage had been carried out for some sites
Do You Use Your Own Vehicle for Business Travel?
The situation of an employee using their own vehicle for business purposes is extremely common. Furthermore a lot of these individuals do not have their mileage reimbursed by their employers, and HMRC acknowledge this as an allowable expense. These expenses can be deducted against your Taxable income when it comes to calculating your Tax. In most circumstances this gives rise to a Tax refund.
