The basics of PPI tax claims: What do you need to know?
As you can see, before you make any type of PPI tax claim, there are a few things that you need to know. It’s always good to learn the basics of financial mis-handling claims. That way you can work with your solicitors feeling like you are prepared for any type of questions that may come your way.
Before you jump into your claim, let’s take a few moments to understand what PPI tax claims are all about. In the past, if you took out any type of financial agreement, you would find that your financial advisor would tell you to take out PPI as well. PPI stands for payment protection insurance. It was used as a safety blanket just in case you could not pay back your loan on a financial agreement, such as credit cards and mortgages, however in most cases it was mis-sold. Take a look at the infographic below to see how financial mis-handling occurred during the sale of PPI.
No one likes being pressurized into buying a product, but for most cases of PPI this ended up being the case. For those who were self-employed or moving abroad, it was completely pointless. That was why HMRC allowed for any mis-sold polices to be reimbursed. However, for quite a lot of people they found that around 20% of their pay-out was taken away due to the amount being taxed. That’s why they may have found that this was unfair considering the circumstances of PPI.
Why did you end up losing PPI tax?
Naturally, a PPI tax claim is about recovering the tax you have lost. There are three categories that make up your PPI rebate as a whole. These are:
- The amount you were given back for your PPI policy
- Any additional loans or interest that was added by the bank onto your policy
- The statutory interest that was added at 8% per year
Overall, the only thing that could be taxed on your PPI is the statutory interest. That’s why you may find that the assumption may be made that the refund of your money could have pushed you over your personal savings allowance (PSA). If this was not the case, then you may have found that 20% of your PPI tax was simply taken away for no reason. In other cases, it may have been taken away automatically by a bank without them actually checking your financial details.
By making a PPI tax claim you can claim back the money that was taken away from you. Gowing Law’s solicitors can help support throughout the claiming process.
Christmas is the perfect time to make a PPI tax claim
Whether you want to get a little extra spending money for the holiday season, or perhaps you want to save some money, you have every right to make a PPI tax claim in order to get a pay-out for HMRC. As this is the season of giving, if you want to make the PPI tax claim process easier, Gowing Law will be here in order to help you understand how much you could be owed. It entirely depends on your own PSA and how much you have gone over or under. Take a look at the GIF below to get an idea of how much tax you can claim:
Now, it is important to state that everyone’s pay-out will be completely different. This is because everyone has a different PSA and will be paying different amounts of tax. So, keep this in mind when you eventually start working with Gowing Law Solicitors. It will take around 6-8 weeks in order to process your claim and get the cheque back from HMRC. Be patient and keep in contact with your solicitor. They will always keep in contact with your to ensure that your claim is handled smoothly.
How do I know if I am eligible to make a PPI tax claim?
Now that you completely understand about the basics of PPI tax claims, and are preparing to make your own so you can get your pay-out just before Christmas, you may be wondering if you could be eligible to make a claim. We are always here to help our claimants. Even if you have already been rejected by HMRC, there may have been a simple mistake that just invalidated your claim. That’s why you may want to be more thorough this time to make sure that you definitely get the pay-out that you deserve.
To be eligible for a PPI tax claim, you may:
- Have spent under your PSA, meaning that there was no reason for it to be taxed
- Have made your PPI claim the last 4 years
- The tax was automatically taken away from your PPI claim at 20%
If you fall into any of these categories then you could claim back your tax without there being any problems. We would recommend that you file your financial documents in order to prove that you are a basic/high tax rate payer and that you were mis-sold PPI when you originally took out your claim. That way, when one of our solicitors in Manchester starts to work on your case, all of the information they need will be at their fingertips. If you ever feel confused about why they are asking for certain information, feel free to let them know! They would be more than happy to help and explain the process to you.
How can a Gowing Law Solicitor help me with PPI tax claims?
Not only can our trained solicitors help you with all of the tricky paperwork of your claim, if you are struggling to crunch together the numbers about how much you could be owed, or perhaps how much you have paid as PPI tax, Gowing Law can support you and can help you avoid making any mistakes that could invalidate your claim.
We can also let you know whether you can make a claim or not. If you have made a claim within four years then you will be eligible to make a claim. If it is any longer then there is a chance that you can no longer get the tax back. So make sure to make your claim as quickly as possible. The best bet is to do it before the new tax year.
In order to make things simple, Gowing Law has created our own PPI self-assessment form that only requires a little information to get started with your claim. That way you can let us know the basics and you can leave the tricky stuff to our tax specialists.
