UK Backpackers Tax Refunds

tax refunds for uk backpackers icon

Are you a backpacker working in the UK? If so, you could be due a UK tax refund.

While you were in the UK, if you worked or are working for an UK employer (full time or part time) and this employment did/does not last for an entire UK tax year (6 April to 5 April), you probably had too much tax deducted from your wages.

A few examples of when you could be entitled to a UK tax refund are:


  • You arrived in the UK part way through a UK tax year and you leave before the end of that tax year- e.g. you arrived in the UK on 1 May 2016 and left on 31 December 2016.
  • You have or had more than one job in the same UK tax year.
  • You were made redundant
  • You were already present in the UK at the start of a tax year and you left the UK before the end of that tax year
  • Your employer(s) have operated an incorrect PAYE code against your employment income.

UK people travelling abroad

It is not only backpackers from outside the UK coming to work in the UK that can pay too much tax on their employment income. An overpayment of tax often occurs for UK Nationals (and long term UK residents) that leave, or return to, the UK after being abroad.

If you plan to leave or have returned to the UK during the tax year and you have had any amount of UK employment income, then please contact us so we can tell you for free if you're due a UK tax rebate.

Once you have an estimation of what you're owed, we can apply for this tax refund on your behalf.

The average UK tax refund for backpackers in the UK is £963

If you’ve worked temporarily in the UK, there’s a good chance you are due a tax rebate. Some of the reasons why you might be due to claim UK tax back are that you only worked part of the year or perhaps you worked part-time. We will examine your individual circumstances to make sure that you get back all the UK tax that you are entitled to. The average UK tax rebate for backpackers is £963 so you could very easily pay for your next trip!

    The personal communications from your agents made all the difference in my choice to use TaxBack. Overwhelmed with what should have been a simple process due to an error going back several years in my taxes, I gave up doing them myself and handed it over to TaxBack. I was assured all 3 years would be fixed and my refunds recieved. Once I handed over my paperwork I never had to ask about updates or remind my agent to do anything - they were so on top of it and made it so easy! Matthew Lloyd was especially helpful and I can't thank him enough for his continued clear communications and patient explanations which saved me so much time!
