Rebate Superstar: Healthcare Assistant – €8,946 Tax Back

Have you ever wondered just how much money you might get from a tax rebate? Each year, thousands of people living and working in Ireland miss out on hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of euros by not claiming back overpaid tax or unclaimed credits.

We know that many people believe a few euros aren’t worth the hassle of filing for tax back, so each month, we share stories about the huge rebates we secured for our customers that have topped the leaderboard. Read on to see how our Accountants always secure our customers the largest rebate possible!

Rebate Superstar 

Job Title: Healthcare Assistant

Rebate Secured: €8,946

This month’s highest rebate was claimed by our Accountants for a healthcare assistant living and working in Mayo. As a healthcare assistant in a busy nursing home services environment, this month’s superstar found it difficult to set aside the time to apply for their rebate, and so contacted the expert Accountants at Irish Tax Rebates to help claim back every cent of what they were owed.

To this client’s astonishment, our experts were able to identify multiple years’ worth of overpaid taxes and unclaimed expenses using our 40-point check system. This unique system allows our accountants to be sure that we are uncovering 100% of the money our customers can claim back. In the case of this healthcare assistant, much of this enormous rebate came from two commonly overlooked areas: General Overpayments and Flat Rate Expenses.

  • General Overpayments: It is not uncommon for overpayments to occur, particularly when a person changes their personal circumstances, such as getting married, changing jobs, enrolling in a course etc. We were able to find multiple areas of overpayment for this customer, resulting in thousands of euros refunded to them. 
  • Flat Rate Expenses: These are expenses made in relation to your job that can be claimed each year. For a Healthcare Assistant, this means claiming money back that was spent on any required uniforms, PPE, footwear, etc. Our Accountants were able to find a large sum of unclaimed Flat Rate Expenses from the last few years – increasing this rebate significantly.

Using over 20 years of expertise, we were able to secure just under €9,000 for this Healthcare Assistant in Mayo. With an average turnaround time of 12 working days, this customer received their rebate for €8,946 within the month!
