PPI Claims: What do I need to know about them?

Before we jump into PPI tax claims, let’s have a small chat about why the tax was taken off in the first place. Now, PPI stands for Payment Protection Insurance. It was originally sold as a safety blanket for those who took out some sort of payment plan. This included credit cards, home insurance, catalogue schemes and many other different types of loans. The problem with PPI is that most of the time the policy did not fit the person buying it, or the payments were not enough to cover the amount needed to pay off the loans. Therefore, having PPI scheme ended up being completely useless.

PPI being mis-sold

That is the why the UK government decided to return the amount that their clients spent on their PPI. The only problem was, when the PPI amount was returned, in most cases around 20% of tax was taken away by HMRC. That tax can be returned through a PPI tax claims. This is where Gowing Law wants to step in to help our clients in the simplest way possible. We have created our own PPI tax form just to make things a little simpler!

Why did HMRC take tax off my PPI pay-out?

In some cases, taking off PPI tax from your pay-out may have been an automatic transaction by the banks at 20%. However, in other cases, your personal saving’s allowance may have been over-estimated without actually being checked. So you may have lost out due to the mismanagement of your funds. Take a look at the infographic below to learn how you could be eligible for a PPI tax claim:

Now, as you can see these are only a few ways that you could be eligible for PPI tax claims. Everyone’s circumstances are going to be different. That’s why it is essential that you get in contact with a solicitor as quickly as possible. That way you can find out for yourself whether or not you could be eligible for any sort of PPI tax claims. Above all, it’s also the best way to find out the answers to any questions you have about PPI tax claims in general. Our solicitors can make sure you know exactly what you need to make a claim and get a pay-out in good time.

Why was I charged PPI tax in the first place?

You may be wondering to yourself, if I was owed a pay-out from my PPI, why was I charged anything at all? It may seem completely unfair that you were charged for a policy that you may not have even wanted in the first place! Well, that’s why it’s entirely within your own right to try and get your money.

Just to explain the basics of PPI tax claims, the pay-out you received from HMRC is actually made up of three things. These are:

Out of all of these things, the only thing that can be taxed is the statutory interest. However, if you have not gone over your personal savings allowance then this should not have been taxed in the first place. Your pay-out should have got you back to the amount you were originally at before you paid any sort of PPI. Unfortunately, 20% may have still been taken away as PPI tax. That’s why you have every right to make a PPI tax claim to get your money back.

How much could I get from a PPI tax pay-out?

If you are interested in PPI tax claims, you may be interested in the amount of money you could get as compensation. First thing we need to say is that every pay-out is different. For some people they could be owed £100’s, depending on the complexity of their case. That’s why we would always recommend that you speak to your lawyer so that you can estimate how much you are owed.

The amount you get for your PPI tax claims depend on the amount of tax you pay and your PSA. Take a look below to get an idea of how much you could get depending on your tax status:

  • Basic Rate Payers (20%): £1000 of savings tax free.
  • High Rate Payers (40%): £500 of savings tax free.
  • Top Rate Payers (45%): Sadly, you are not eligible for PPI tax claims.

As you can see, the amount of tax you pay does end up making a difference when it comes to your pay-out. Speak to Gowing Law today to get a more rounded estimate about how much you could get. We will make sure to do the negotiations on your behalf with HMRC. Even if you have already been rejected from HMRC, our solicitors can find out what happened and make sure that your next claim is completely validated.
