Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

I received the NI refund part about 6 weeks after my Trust submitted my details and the Tax refund came between 8-10 weeks after the NI refund.

I was employed by the NHS immediately prior to starting training, so that might be a factor.

Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

I went through the Trust route (after a long drawn out process of trying the individual route) before being told finally by HMRC I had to contact my employers. I'm happy to say I have received both my NI and tax refund and it is a considerable amount of money. I've heard people being told different ...

Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

I wrote to my Trust a couple of weeks ago and have heard nothing back. Wondering how long to leave it before I just contact HMRC again to say my Trust aren't co-operating. It took 4 weeks from my Trust actually sending my details to HMRC for me to receive the letter about NI contributions rebate. I...

Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

I trained at Leeds and have a letter about NI contributions rebate. My colleagues trained at Sheffield and have been told they are eligible by payroll. Yes we were all salaried and on contracts BUT whilst we got NHS terms and conditions around sick pay etc our employment (unlike other salaried colle...

Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

Well, I received my letter from HMRC yesterday to say my trust have contacted them and I'm due a rebate of NI contributions which they'll send as a cheque (it's for nearly £3k!) and they'll deal with any possible tax rebate separately. It seems to be taking 4 weeks from trusts contacting them for HM...

Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

I agree with Llogue. I'd apply as an individual claimant & provide proof your employer isn't supporting you. Ultimately it's for HMRC to decide whether we are eligible. How much we got paid (i.e. Over £15k) might be an issue but the statement of practice that the tax exemption relates to just says i...

Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

I know my workplace have emailed the email address stated. Do you have any idea how long before HMRC emailed back with the schedule? It took HMRC a couple of weeks to respond to the e-mail from my Trust. I think the Trusts seem to send claims in batches to HMRC which might have delayed my claim ano...

Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

Thanks for all the info about timescales, it's really helpful. I'm thinking it's probably going to be at least September before I hear anything about the NI component, and that's if I'm lucky. I know Sheffield told a collegue to expect 9 months from employers making a claim and hearing anything from...

Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

Sorry, I'm not sure about the Scottish query but I'd suggest you contact your employer from when you were a trainee and ask them to make the claim on your behalf. They need to e-mail nhswat.mailbox@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk and request a schedule on which to record your details. If it doesn't apply to Scotlan...

Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

Someone got a refund! Yay! From the dealings I've had with HMRC, the message i've been getting is that employers have to submit the claim on our behalf as the first step (unless we have evidence that they won't support us, then HMRC will process an individual claim). The info that they have to submi...

Re: New trust wanting bank statements and birth certificates

I agree with others that this was a poor response from the administrator but bringing originals for the Trust to verify after being appointed has become standard practice (although i don't think I've been asked for my birth certificate, but then I've always had 2 forms of photo ID so i don't know if...

Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

I received a letter from HMRC in relation to my claim, which i think a lot of you will be receiving as it looks quite standard. It asks that I contact my previous employer and ask them to e-mail HMRC for a schedule to complete my details and confirm my student status. I already included proof from t...

Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

I also submitted the application back in December. Have chased it on the phone and been told it will be "months". Recently tried phoning again, and number was engaged. Phoned standard HMRC line. They could tell I had been in contact about a claim, but seemed surprised it was taking so long. Someone...

Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

i started the thread after sending my application in the HMRC in December 2014 along with copies of my doctorate certificate, P60s from training, letter from uni confirming I was a full-time student during the dates I'm claiming for and a copy of my marriage certificate for change of name. It's been...

Re: Any sucess for tax refund while training?

Quick update on this for anyone else who has applied. I phoned HMRC and apparently they have been overwhelmed with applications so have logged all the ones received and are gradually working through them according to date received. It's only a small department and they are struggling with the level ...
