How much is the average repayment?

Unfortunately there is no average repayment,rebates vary on an individual basis.

However, analysis of past claims indicates that most social workers receive a cheque in excess of £150, with an increase in their tax free allowance of £48 p.a.

When will I receive my rebate cheque?

Individual tax rebate claims can take HM Revenue & Customs 3 months or longer to process. Our detailed knowledge of how HMRC process tax rebate claims has enabled us to reduce the time to 6-8 weeks.

As you can imagine Tax Offices are sometimes reluctant to issue tax rebates. However, our experience and knowledge of the repayment system helps us to overcome these obstacles on your behalf.


"I found the service from SRS to be excellent from start to finish. The process was simple and totally efficient. When i needed to ring, there were no automated messages, only friendly people who answered my questions. I received £319.61 without doing any form filling or searching for past payments. First Class!"

Mr M Johns, County Durham

"It was very easy to secure a tax rebate. I made a phone call and gave some personal details. In a few days I received some forms which required signatures and six weeks later received a tax rebate for £240.93."

Mrs D Walsh, Belfast

"A professional service that is so simple and user friendly that it would be daft not to contact SRS."

Mr L Stoodley, Kent

"A great service! Not only did SRS refund my expected overpaid tax on union subscriptions, they also sorted out my rather complicated tax records so that my final payment (less their very modest fee) was MUCH more than I expected. I would recommend SRS to anyone wanting to receive a repayment of overpaid tax."

Ms S Mills, Derby, Received over £1,000

"Thank you for your excellent service. I found your company to be extremely professional and helpful in assisting me in reclaiming my tax rebate - it was a quick and easy process. Thanks once again."

Mr S Fullelove, Oldham
