Posted by on 20/02/15 in TAX BACK | 0 comments

From April 6th 2015, married couples and civil partners may be eligible for a new transferable tax allowance.

Uniforms tax refund or tax allowance for HM Forces ?

Posted by on 20/04/14 in TAX REBATE | Comments Off

The Ministry of Defence has announced that, from 2014, serving officers of HM Forces will get a tax free allowance to pay for the cost of cleaning their uniforms. This allowance will be made by increasing their individual PAYE tax code and, the higher the tax code, the less tax is paid. Some employees who are required to wear ‘special’ clothing or uniforms in their jobs, are entitled to UK income tax relief for the costs of its upkeep. However, until now, this has never applied to armed forces personnel. Whilst combat gear/military dress etc...

This code describes to employers how much UK income tax to deduct from an employee. The PAYE tax code is normally based on information provided to HMRC by the taxpayer or their employer. PAYE tax codes are usually adjusted once a year to take into account any changes made in the National Budget, but can be...

What is your UK income tax rate?

Posted by on 31/03/14 in TAX BACK | Comments Off

Most UK income taxpayers believe it to be 20pc or 40pc, perhaps even 45pc but, of course, there is an extra ‘tax’ on earnings, known as National Insurance (NI)!So, as salaries rise, the real UK income tax effective rates – including NI – change from 32pc to 42pc to 62pc then back to 42pc and, finally, to 47pc. And, as the great Michael Caine would say…. ‘Not a lot of people know that’To clarify then. From April 2014 the ‘true’ rate of UK income tax on earnings over £10,000 is 32pc i.e. tax...
