Lee Hepburn - Base Technician

Lee Hepburn from Manchester works as a Base Technician offshore at various sites around the UK. He is employed under PAYE, but his employer does not reimburse any of his travelling or other subsistence costs. Lee was always fine with this as his salary was more than enough to cover this.

It was only in the latter half of 2016 when his work colleague mentioned QuickRebates to Lee, and that he should make a claim for the costs he pays out of his own pocket.

Lee dropped QuickRebates a phone call, explained his working situation, the places he had been contracted as well as details of other expenses. He was required to collect various pieces of information, such as his employment contract and job diary. From there, QuickRebates were able to prepare the Tax claim on his behalf, and deal with all of the HMRC headaches. The total repayment Lee received amounted to £1,826.
