Students are typically a group that needs their money as much as anyone. They have expenses that they have not had to face in the past, and they are probably not used to having to pay for all of the things that they are now expected to take care of. As such the student tax refund is important to them in particular.
Hmrc.gov.uk, the website of the branch of government responsible for collecting taxes in the United Kingdom says,
If you have overpaid tax on your earnings or interest from your savings you can claim it back, if your taxable income is covered by your tax allowances. You may have paid too much tax if you don’t earn much or if your only, or main, source of income is savings interest.
This matters because people who are paying more than they need to into the system should have some recourse to regain the money that they have placed into the government accounts. It is their money, and they should be able to reclaim it. Students in particular will want to have that money back.
In order to avoid the frustrations and confusion of going through all of the paperwork on your own, it is advisable to try to find a tax consulting firm that can help with this.
They study the tax codes to ensure that they know what they are doing for their clients. Thus, they are well versed in what needs to be done in order to get the refunds for their clients. That makes it easier to just hand them the work and be on your way.
