Tax Rebate Calculator
2017 Tax Refund Calculator
The Tax Rebate Calculator computes the Tax refund you could be entitled to. It allows you to calculate estimated Tax refunds for PAYE workers, self employed, uniformed workers, individuals working in construction (including CIS), and various other trades & industries. It also works as a CIS Tax Rebate Calculator
Tax Rebate Calculator Online
Our new Tax refund calculator is quite dynamic and will give you an estimate of what you could be entitled to. At QuickRebates it is common to find the real Tax rebate to be much higher than what it states in the calculator. This is because during our process of managing your claim we try to seek and identify as many allowable expenses and allowances as possible. Commonly a lot more costs and reliefs materialise which may have been overlooked when completing the Tax rebate calculator below.
Although the calculator helps those individuals who are expecting a rebate, it also works as a general Tax return calculator and will deliver the same results. For example, if you want to forecast your Income Tax for the year, this calculator will calculate your end of year position taking into consideration National Insurance contributions.
The Tax refund calculator helps you estimate a rebate for a number of different circumstances:
- You are self-employed
- You are employed under PAYE
- For construction workers (including CIS)
- Uniform rebates
- General Tax overpayments
To assist in the accuracy of your Tax rebate, having access to your P60 and/or payslips will greatly help the calculations. Please remember that it is only an estimate of what could be due and should be confirmed with ourselves direct.
CIS Tax Rebate Calculator
The CIS Tax rebate calculator will act as a rough indication of what your potentially Tax refund could be. It will take into consideration your pay (or gross income), the Tax you have paid as well as details of the expenses and mileage you have entered.
Quite commonly we find that that actual overpayments are much more than what has been shown in the calculator, simply because individuals working in Construction are not sure on what can be claimed, and what cannot.
What can be regarded as qualifying expenditure in the CIS industry can be quite extensive, but it can include items such as:
- The cost of a van
- Expenditure suffered on tools & equipment
- Cost of materials required to complete jobs and projects
- Using your own home as an office
- Mobile phone costs (for replacements and line rental)
- Laptop / PC expenses
- Various other expenses
Self Employed Rebate Calculator
The Tax refund calculator can be used to assess whether you have overpaid Tax on your Self Assessment Tax Return. For those individuals that have completed their own return, it can be quite easy to accidentally miss some of the more obvious allowable trading expenses, including:
- Using your own home as an office
- Computer equipment
- Telephone costs
- Sundry items such as printer / stationery
- Mileage for travelling to workplaces based in different locations
If you have any doubts with regards to the completion of your Self Assessment Tax Return, we would advise you to get in touch for a quick review. Quite often Tax payers are unsure of what can be claimed, and what is disallowable. But what is commonly found is that Tax payers have under recorded their allowable expenditure, in which case a Tax rebate could be due.
Have Your Overpaid Your Tax?
Overpaying Income Tax happens more than you think. The reason for this is that unless HMRC know about your additional expenses and allowances, they believe your Tax is correct. It is the job of the Tax payer to let HMRC know of additional costs they have incurred whilst carrying out their work activities. When this happens HMRC are then able to recalculate your Tax position for the year and credit you the Tax rebate.
At the current time of writing, HMRC allow Tax claims to be backdated for up to four Tax years. Because of this it is essential that you act fast so that you don’t miss out on claims for earlier years.
