When plasterer and dryliner David, of Plymouth, used tax and refund specialists Bettertax for the first time, he was very impressed. “They have done exactly what they said they would do,” David said. “I was well informed throughout and will definitely be using them again. I would highly recommend them, especially as they got me back over £6000.”
Buckingham-based Bettertax work exclusively for trades people like David and have helped thousands of people recover their overpaid tax.
Bettertax Commercial Director, Ricky Garcha explains: “We work directly with guys who still get their hands dirty. Around 90% of our current clients have come through referrals, which is due to the great work and excellent relationships we’ve established in the trade. It’s a testament to the quality of our service and the efficiency of the Bettertax system.”
Bettertax operate a 100% no refund, no fee policy, so if they’re unable to secure a refund, their clients don’t pay a penny.
“We know that a lot of self employed and CIS Tradesmen struggle to get their tax returns completed for a variety of reasons and that an incredible amount of PAYE guys aren’t even aware that they’re entitled to a tax refund. “ Ricky told us. “If you’re a CIS, self-employed or PAYE professional, we can deal with your registration, manage your entire relationship with the tax office and go through your expenses, letting you know what you can and can’t claim for to ensure that you get back the maximum tax refund you’re legally entitled to.”
In many cases, people approach Bettertax with outstanding tax returns and fines on their accounts.
“Not a penny is taken unless we’ve managed to get the books in order and clear the fines,” says Ricky. “Even then, we’ll only charge on the remaining refund.”
Clients range in profession from general builders to crane operators, carpenters, electricians and plumbers to tillers, painters and decorators through to scaffolders, offshore riggers, roustabouts and plasterers and dryliners, like David.
“You name the trade, we will have completed a tax return!” Ricky smiles.
