Tax health check?
If you would like to check that you are paying the right amount of tax why not contact the UK's leading personal tax rebate specialists The Tax Refund Company (new window). To date they have recovered over £60 million in tax for the tens of thousands of people who have taken advantage of the "no rebate no fee" service. Their ‘no risk’ tax health check means that you only pay a fee if they obtain a refund.
