Arrived in or left the UK part way through a tax year?
If you're a PAYE (Pay as You Earn) worker and you either arrived in or left the UK part way through a tax year, you will be able to claim a refund for any of the unused part of your tax-free personal allowance in that tax year.
For example, in the 2014/15 tax year you can receive up to £10,600 tax free.
Depending on your circumstances, you may be able to claim back the tax-free part of your earnings if:
- you arrived part way through a tax year
- the income you earned during the year you arrived or left the UK was less than £10,000, or
- you left the UK part way through the year, you intend to be outside the country for at least 3 months and you are not planning to return to work in the UK within the same tax year
Who can apply?
No matter your job, if you've only worked part of a tax year after arriving, or before leaving, the UK, you could qualify for a tax refund.
