My last 2 tax returns have been dealt with by Charmaine who was very responsive to any questions I had, and kept me updated as to progress of my claims. Many thanks for the great service provided

This was my first time using Tommy's tax and I was immediately impressed. I has the pleasure of a young lady named Emily help me out. After filling the initial details she quickly went over everything in detail and helped me out with stuff I'd put it incorrectly or just forgotten to do. Fast, efficient and really helpful and professional.

After being recommended this service by a close friend of mine, I must say I was very pleased with everything overall. The app was very easy to set up and extremely user friendly. It made loading information about wage slips, p60s etc very simple. Once I had submitted all my information, the contact between myself and my account Emily, was prompt, very swift, thorough and she was extremely professional throughout. Any concerns or queries I had, she answered in a way where I could understand procedures and the process step by step which made everything effortless for me. So thank you very much your work and communications, they were very much appreciated and I have already informed two people who are now registered with Tommy’s Tax because of the great service I’ve had.

3 years worth of tax now and not had one single problem. Had Laura complete all 3 years now and again not one fault, very understanding if you’re like me and not very clued up with everything regarding your figures. Very helpful and gives very quick responses. Always feel in safe hands when Laura is handling my rebate figures. Would highly recommend 👍🏻

I decided to go with Tommy’s Tax because I had no idea how to do this myself. A lovely lady called Georgia was super patient with me and answered all my questions and explained what I had to do. I had no idea I was eligible to apply and have had a great financial rebate that will make a big difference in these times. Thanks Tommy Tax, Thanks Georgia

I heard about Tommy's Tax through a friend at work and they were fantastic. A tax rebate through an easy to use app is how it should have always been! Full credit to Laura who worked on my case and was on constant communication and helped with everything I needed. I already have a few friends/family in the process after seeing how easy it was for me.

My friend told me about Tommys Tax app at the beginning of the month. I haven't been disappointed in the slightest. I was assigned Laura to manage my personal Tax account, she's been quick, efficient and communicated through out the process. Received a text yesterday saying Money has come in and will be debited into my account within 48hours, amazing service, over the moon to receive my refund and can't thank Laura and the rest of the team at Tommys Tax.Brilliant experience.

Tommy’s Tax honestly is brilliant. Very supportive and concise with instructions. The whole process took about 2 weeks. Tommy sent screenshots of the information I had to input into the app and Charmaine was always on hand answering my questions and queries. I have received my funds and it’s gone straight into my savings. Also, the great thing is £50 for referrals. I have lots of friends that I am now referring so that will be extra bits of money I can make on top of the significant amount I received for my Tax refund. Great service! Would absolutely recommend 🙂

WE'VE BEEN FEATURED IN THESE PUBLICATIONS

Here at Tommy’s Tax we strive to provide the very best experience for each and every one of our clients. During our time within the industry we’re proud to say we’ve been published in a number of top publications offering tips and advice.

MILLIONS OF UK WORKERS USE THEIR OWN CAR FOR WORK — WITHOUT KNOWING THEY CAN GET TAX RELIEF ON MILEAGE

Even if your employer does give you mileage expenses, often they don’t give enough. So you can STILL claim for a travel tax refund.

Car and van drivers, motorcyclists, and even regular cyclists and moped drivers all have a tax allowance for mileage. And because the tax mileage allowance covers both fuel and the general wear and tear that comes with travelling about, HMRC actually pays out a decent amount. 

Here’s how much you can claim per mile:

Car Fuel Allowance

45p for each mile (for the first 100,000 miles)

Motorcyclists

24p for each mile

Cyclists

20p for each mile

It doesn’t matter how old or new your vehicle is, everyone gets paid out the same flat rate from the HMRC.

AND YOU GET EVEN MORE CAR MILEAGE ALLOWANCE RELIEF IF YOU CARRY PASSENGERS!

You get more HMRC mileage allowance if you carry passengers with you on business trips. At a rate of an extra 5p per passenger, per mile.

You can even claim extra passenger tax on mileage driving in a company car or van. As long as the vehicle is driven by you alone, and not shared amongst other company drivers.

HERE’S HOW HMRC MILEAGE ALLOWANCE TAX REBATES WORK

HMRC allows for some mileage allowance relief if you have to use your own car to go on business trips or to travel between temporary workplaces. And they’ll pay you back with a flat rate depending on the vehicle you’re using. They call them Approved Mileage Allowance Payment (AMAP) rates.

If you aren’t getting AMAP rates from your employer — or if you aren’t getting enough — then you can make a mileage claim to HMRC to get the full amount back that you are entitled to.

If your claim is quite large — more than £2,500 of expenses in a single year, you will need to fill in a P87 form to make a claim to HMRC. If you’re claiming even more, you may need to fill in a Self Assessment tax return. Either way, our experts know just exactly what to do and how to do it. We will make sure you don’t miss out on a single penny.

It’s estimated that roughly around £200 million worth of hard-earned, unclaimed tax is just sitting around in the government’s bank vaults — doing nothing. And if you don’t make your claim soon, that money disappears forever.

IF YOU DON’T THINK YOU’VE KEPT ENOUGH RECORDS OR RECEIPTS OF YOUR BUSINESS TRIPS — DON’T WORRY, WE’RE HERE TO HELP

It’s helpful to have the paperwork at hand when making a mileage allowance relief claim. Still, even if you don’t have it, it’s not too hard to put everything together and make your claim. 

All you need to do is have a think about all of your work travel and business trips. Including:

• The date(s) you took the trip
• Distance travelled
• Where you went to (destinations) 

Remember, even if you used public transport — that counts! You can claim money back for that. Train tickets, taxi fares, bus rides all count. But if you’re struggling to put everything together, we can help. In fact, this is what we do all day, every day. Our pros will help you to get your records up. And will fill in any information gaps.

IF YOU DON’T ACT NOW, YOU COULD LOSE £1,000S OF YOUR OWN MONEY — AND AFTER A CERTAIN DEADLINE HMRC DOESN’T HAVE TO GIVE IT BACK

The government has strict deadlines and time constraints on when and how they pay back work mileage tax rebates. You can still claim for as far back as the past four years. But it won’t be long before the window closes. And once that happens, you’ll miss out on a chance to claim back your hard-earned money.

Most people are so busy in their day-to-day lives that they forget or do not have time to claim back their mileage or travel tax. And even more people are unaware that they could be looking at a tax on mileage rebate in the £1000s. 

Even if you think your business travel miles are covered by your tax code, most of the time this isn’t the case.

LET OUR EXPERTS GET YOU THE MAXIMUM CAR MILEAGE ALLOWANCE RELIEF YOU’RE ENTITLED TO — WE’LL GET YOU AN ESTIMATE FOR FREE. IT ONLY TAKES SECONDS TO REGISTER WITH US.

Claiming car mileage allowance relief and travel tax on your own is hard to do. It means keeping records. And knowing all the dates, distances and destinations. 

But our tax experts are pros at helping people to sort out their work mileage tax rebate problems. We will help you fill in all the gaps. AND can help with all the little details, meaning we can squeeze every last entitlement you have out of HMRC. So that you’ll always get the maximum mileage tax and travel tax refund in your pocket. 

We’ll also make sure everything is delivered to HMRC in the right way, avoiding any nasty penalties or grievances from the government. 

Remember this is the money that you’ve earned, and that you deserve. Don’t let your hard-earned wages sit around at HMRC when it could be in your pockets.

CAR MILEAGE ALLOWANCE RELIEF & TRAVEL TAX FAQS

Yes. If you have to go on business trips for work then you should be able to claim a company mileage allowance, along with other travel tax benefits. Such as public transport costs, food and drink, business phone calls, and even hotel accommodation (if you have to stay overnight).

10,000 miles. You can claim back car mileage allowance relief that is tax-free up to 10,000 miles. Once you go over that amount, the amount you can claim back reduces by almost half, to 25p per mile. 

Yes. It is estimated that a majority (60%) of business drivers overestimate their numbers when putting in a mileage claim. So HMRC pay a lot of attention to the claims — and do not hesitate to issue fines and penalties if the information provided to them is inaccurate.

Declaring “accurate” information isn’t always straightforward, because it isn’t always easy to pick apart the differences between driving for private usage (such as commuting) and business usage.

If you want to avoid penalties and fines — but still want to make a mileage claim — our experts will do this for you safely and quickly.

If you’ve ever had to go on a business trip in your own vehicle for work, you can claim tax back for the following: mileage, parking fees, congestion charges and tolls.

But even if you didn’t take your own vehicle to work, you can still claim the following: public transport costs, hotel accommodation (if you need to stay overnight), food and drink, business phone calls and printing costs.

No. At least, not if you’re simply commuting to your ordinary, normal workplace. If for whatever reason your place of work temporarily changes (for example, for an office renovation, for less than 24 months), THEN you may be eligible for a mileage claim and car fuel allowance. 

You can also claim tax back for driving to work if travelling is an essential and necessary part of your job. For example, if you are often asked to drive to different locations. But commuting does not count.

Only after the first 10,000 miles. Before you reach 10,000 miles, you get a tax-free approved mileage allowance of 45p per mile. After that, it is taxed. So that it’s 25p per mile after the 10,000-mile figure has been passed.
