Pay As You Earn (PAYE)

Pay As You Earn (PAYE)

What is PAYE?

For most UK workers, the Pay As You Earn (PAYE) scheme is how they pay the tax they owe on their income. HMRC gives you a tax code, which your employer uses to work out how much tax to take from your pay. They then send that money to HMRC before paying the rest to you. In most cases, you don’t have to do anything about it yourself. However, it’s worth keeping tabs on how much tax is coming out of your pay. It’s possible for your tax code to be wrong, or for you to be owed a refund on some of your work expenses.

Can PAYE workers be entitled to a tax rebate?

Many PAYE workers are missing out on possible tax rebates, there are many reasons why they could be owed tax. This could be from either having the wrong tax code & HMRC taking too much tax or as in many jobs you will often be asked to travel to work at other temporary work places or for training, in those cases then you could be due money back for travel, food or even accommodation costs.

The tax year runs each year from 6th April to the 5th April the following year, so make sure your employment is within these dates for the work you believe you were overtaxed on.

The great thing is you can claim back for the past 4 tax years so if you have not done so before then could be due a good amount back. Please speak to one our tax experts here at Rebate My Tax to find out more information and we can get your claim going as quickly as possible.

Marriage Tax Allowance

Marriage Tax Allowance

What is marriage tax allowance?

The marriage allowance is a government scheme designed to give married couples income tax relief. Essentially, you are able to transfer some of your tax-free allowance to your spouse if you make less than the current personal allowance. In doing this, they can reduce their tax bill by up to £250 over the year.

Am I eligible?

  • You need to be married or in a civil partnership
  • One partner must earn under your personal allowance, usually around £12,500
  • The other must earn between £12,501 and £50,000 (anyone who pays the basic 20% tax rate) 1
  • You both need to have been born after 6 April 1935 1

The non-taxpaying partner can “give” the taxpaying partner £1,250 of their allowance. By adding to their tax-free alliance, they pay up to £250 less. The best way to apply for the marriage allowance is online, where you simply enter your details (or you can also apply by phone if you prefer). The non-taxpayer should complete the application. Once you’ve submitted your application, you’ll receive a letter from HMRC detailing whether or not you’re eligible.

You can use this calculator to work out if you qualify for Married Couple’s Allowance, and how much you might get. You need to be married or in a civil partnership to claim. https://www.gov.uk/calculate-married-couples-allowance

Uniform Tax Allowance

Uniform Tax Allowance

If you’re paying to buy, repair or replace your uniform or protective clothing you need for work, you may be due a tax refund from HMRC. You won’t get it automatically, you will need to claim it back by submitting a tax return. You must have proof of your expenditure so it is important to keep any receipts, you can upload them to our amazing app so it is easy for yourself & us as your agent to keep track. We will then put the expense into your tax return to claim back.

How much could I get?

The amount you’re able to claim tax relief on depends on your industry. The standard flat-rate expense allowance for uniform maintenance is £60 (2020/21) – if you’re a basic-rate taxpayer, you can claim 20% of this back, so £12. Higher-rate payers can reclaim £24 (40% of £60). The great thing is your can claim for within the last 4 tax years if you have no done so before.

You are eligible to claim if you fit any of the following.

  • You wear a recognisable uniform that shows you’ve got a certain job, such as a branded T-shirt, nurse or police uniform. Although even plain clothes which you only wear for work may count.
  • Your employer requires you to wear it while you’re working.
  • You have to purchase, clean, repair or replace it yourself. However, you can’t claim if your employer washes your kit, provides facilities to do so (even if you don’t use them) or pays you for doing this maintenance.
  • You paid income tax in the year you are claiming for.
