If your claim is successful we will deduct a total fee comprising of 36% plus VAT of any refund payment from HMRC plus an administration charge of £30 plus VAT. Where the value of the refund received from HMRC falls below our fee, we will limit our fee to the total amount of the rebate received. In instances where the amount we have recovered is less than our Fee, we will never ask you to pay the difference. Fast Track Reclaim acts as a Tax intermediary only.

What is working from home allowance?

If you have been requested to work from home due to Covid-19, even for one day you are eligible for a £312 allowance for each year.

Due to Covid-19 forcing many of us to work from home we all would have had increased electricity and gas bills. To support us the government has released a working from home allowance that is £6 a week, totalling £312 a year.

This allowance is available for multiple people working from home at the same address. Note, each person would have to apply individually to claim.

How long does my claim take?

One of the main reasons why it is essential to get your claim in as quickly as possible is due to the amount of time needed to make a claim. Normally, it would take around 6-8 weeks to get a pay-out from HMRC however due to the COVID pandemic HMRC are advising that tax refunds can take up to 28 weeks.

Am I guaranteed a refund?

If you meet the criteria then yes. While we aim to secure everyone a refund it all depends on your individual circumstances and the final calculation from HMRC.

How does it work?

The process is simple. All we need to do is get some basic information when you fill out our online claim form. Once you sign and submit the online form we complete all the necessary work and your dedicated claims handler will contact HMRC to negotiate and secure you the most amount of refund as possible.
