Members can also find out if they are claiming their full tax allowances by taking advantage of our agreement with the Tax Refund Company.
Since 1994 they have reviewed the tax position of many thousands of working people, becoming the UK's leading personal tax rebate specialist, instrumental in recovering millions of pounds overpaid tax.
Up to a third of all tax codes are wrong, and billions of pounds may be waiting to be claimed. Not only that, the time limit for claiming a personal tax refund is being reduced to four years, from the current six years.
