Rebate Superstar

Job Title: Electrician

Rebate Secured: €15,622

Our rebate superstar for this month works in Cork as an Electrician. He wasn’t quite sure how to apply, or what credits and expenses he could claim, so he contacted our Accountants to help him secure his maximum rebate.

Using our unique 40-point check system, our Accountants got to work to figure out exactly how much money he was owed. As an electrician for a biopharmaceutical manufacturing company, this customer had a few years’ worth of unclaimed work expenses, which we were able to claim back for him. These expenses, called flat rate expenses, are expenditures that are made specifically in relation to a person’s occupation. For this customer, we were able to help him claim money back that was spent on uniforms, PPE, footwear, and other work-related purchases.

In addition to a few other areas in which he had unclaimed credits, our accountants also noted that he was being assessed independently from his spouse, which is quite common among our customers who are recently married. For married couples, some tax credits are doubled if they are assessed jointly, significantly increasing their maximum rebate. In addition, if you choose to be assessed jointly, the standard tax rate cut-off point can actually be increased by up to €24,800 if both partners are earning.

 With several years’ worth of unclaimed expenses and credits to look through, our expert accountants were able to claim back over €15,000 for this Cork-based Electrician, with a super-fast turnaround time of less than 2 working weeks!
