Getting Tax Refunds for GPs
Everyone likes a tax refund!
We have successfully helped many doctors receive tax refunds over the years.
This is a relatively simple process, if you follow the steps.
We can usually talk you through the process by telephone.
We then provide you with a pro forma tax refund letter along with simple instructions.
Most of our client doctors receive their refunds quickly and without any complication.
What are the time limits for claiming back tax?
You have four years from the end of the tax year in which the overpayment arose to claim a refund, as shown below.
If a claim is not made within the time limit you will lose out on any refund that may be due and the tax year becomes ‘closed’ to claims.
- Tax year 2016/17 (year ended 5 April 2017) – claim by 5 April 2021
- Tax year 2017/18 (year ended 5 April 2018) – claim by 5 April 2022
- Tax year 2018/19 (year ended 5 April 2019) – claim by 5 April 2023
- Tax year 2019/20 (year ended 5 April 2020) – claim by 5 April 2024
