Expat Tax Returns which is also called UK Work Secondment Tax Rebates
UK Work Secondment Tax Rebates applies if you came to work in Britain from abroad because of a Work Secondment. If this is your case, you may be due a large tax refund.
Who can qualify for a UK Secondment tax rebate?
Work secondments can apply to a wide range of professions. However, we generally find that researchers, scientists and IT professionals are the most prone to come under the scope of work secondments.
Often overseas employers may request from their employees that they relocate temporarily to the UK subsidiary of their company for a period of 6 to 24 months.
If you come on a workplace secondment in the UK, you would normally be paid in GBP whilst in the UK and pay income tax under PAYE (Pay As You Earn scheme), like any other UK employee. As a result, you could be owed hundreds of pounds once your secondment comes to an end.
All Expat MUST submit a tax return. Unsubmitted or late tax returns penalties will incur penalties from HMRC, worth up to £1,600 per tax year.
