We hate to say it, but… Christmas is just 10 weeks away! If you’re getting started on the gift shopping list, now is a great time to check whether you can claim back tax from HMRC.

Christmas can be a really expensive time for many people, particularly if you have children who are looking forward to their stocking full of presents. All the costs of the festive season – such as present buying, socialising, food and drink ¬– can leave families facing an austere New Year.

But are you sure that you’re not owed a tax refund? Many working people don’t realise that they can claim tax relief against certain work-related expenses, including travel to temporary workplaces, the upkeep of uniform and equipment, parking and even some professional fees.

If you work in occupations such as construction, healthcare, professional sports, cabin crew or vehicle maintenance, or are an Uber driver or a serving member of the Armed Forces, there could be a number of expenses against which you could claim a tax refund.

Don’t make a wish and leave it up to Father Christmas, though! We understand that you’re busy with work and family life, so that’s why we take care of the entire claim process and liaise with HMRC for you. If you’re owed tax back, you could even receive your tax refund in time for Christmas. Cheers to that!
