Claim back your travel expenses with RIFT
If you’re driving your own vehicle to different jobs, you could be entitled to a tax refund.
When you’re listed as a PAYE (you’re ‘on the books’) and you drive your own vehicle or use public transport to get to temporary work sites, there’s a good chance you qualify for a refund. For a four-year claim, you or any employees could be looking at an average tax refund of £2,500.
If you’re self-employed (CIS), RIFT can also help you complete your tax return and claim for things like meals, telephone bills, tools and clothing, for an average refund of £2,000.
Check eligibility to start claiming tax back or call 01233 653978 and quote ‘Rated People’.
Habito is a new online service that makes the mortgage application process as easy as possible. Give them a go and if you use them to find your mortgage (or re-mortgage) you’ll get £50 credit.
It’s completely free to use and they don’t favour any lenders. It’s all about finding the best mortgage for you, with no jargon, no fees and no misinformation. Plus, if you’ve had a mortgage for years then they might be able to get you on to a cheaper one, saving you thousands in the long run.
- Use their online mortgage calculator to get an idea of how much you can afford.
- Apply online – no paperwork. Sign up 24/7.
- You’ll be personally looked after by an expert who’ll be there for you, start to finish.
If you’re self-employed you’ll need two years of accounts before most lenders will consider your application. Once you’ve finalised your mortgage, Habito will let us know. We’ll then apply your credit within 75 days of completion.
