We're a global company nowadays so it's hard to believe that taxback.com began at a kitchen table with a young Irish guy preparing German tax returns for his university friends.
After a summer working abroad in Germany, he found it frustratingly difficult to try and reclaim the German tax they had overpaid. That was why he took matters into his own hands and did it himself.
Back then, there was no network of offices all over the world; he was helped by his mother who looked after the administration and phone calls. That was seventeen years ago and things didn't stay like that for long......
Very quickly, that little acorn started to grow and a team of entrepreneurial business executives set about cultivating a global organisation. This organisation went on to take root in 33 offices in 23 countries and now employs a team of 875.
Taxback.com now forms part of the Taxback Group, which offers a suite of services including specialist tax return, finance and travel consultancy services for individual and corporate clients.
The original business model was based on providing tax refund services to individuals who had worked abroad in popular migration countries. As migration has expanded in line with the global economic trends, we now provide tax refund and tax return services across 13 countries.
We've moved into the corporate sector too, leveraging our tax expertise across multiple jurisdictions to bring new services to market at competitive prices. You can learn more about our corporate services here.
We're not just all about making money either – we've got a big conscience and we understand that our moral obligation to the local communities where we are based is of paramount importance, not just to our own team, but to their families and children. Our Corporate Social Responsibility programme has focused on improving the lives of children in the communities where we operate.
The dominant theme of our CSR programme is 'Progress through Play'; the main aim being to facilitate improvements to children’s lives through Play. Anxious that our support goes beyond mere monetary donations, our CSR Initiative gives our employees the chance to 'roll up their sleeves' and physically get involved on a voluntary basis in the programmes that we support.
