Frequently Asked Questions
How long does a tax refund take?
Typically it takes between 8 to 10 weeks to process an average tax refund claim. HMRC are always busier close to the self assessment tax return deadline of 31 January, and the tax credit renewals deadline of 31 July and they tend to be slower at those times.
Tax refund scams
Fake emails and texts from HMRC are becoming more common and it's getting harder to tell the difference between a genuine offer and a tax refund scam. We've been in the industry a long time so we've seen our fair share of scam messages over the years and want to protect you from fraudulent deals. Check out our top tips on how to spot a tax refund scam.Report a scam
