All construction workers are in risk in terms of fuel theft. It doesn’t only cause damage to your vehicles but also lead to a loss of money and an extra tax load. The key is to educate people, make them aware. Also if you have been paying for your own transportation and fuel then you are entitled to a tax refund. You can easily submit your tax return by using our online tax return services.
If you work in construction the chances are you are required to drive vehicles on site regularly. With fuel theft increasing on a weekly basis your industry is one of the largest at risk. Fuel fraud or even laundering is also now some of the most popular crimes being committed, so every one on site, whatever their role needs to be more vigilant. Some site managers may be tempted to buy batches of cheap fuel, however most of the laundered fuel has been filtered through chemicals or acid that does real damage to fuel pumps in vehicles, costing thousands to rectify.
As we have always stated we (Express Tax Claims) always try to go the little bit further for you than any of our competitors do.
When we released a fresh updated look for our website, we included some facts and figures that a potential customer could use as a guideline of what they could expect to claim.
When our competitors had seen that we were advertising an average tax refund amount of £1200 per year per client, they simply could not believe what they were seeing so called in the ASA to investigate.
We could not be more proud to say that ASA found most of their claims (three out of four) to be invalid and were judged as “Not Upheld”, as we were completely able to prove that actually these average claims were in fact completely accurate.
The one claim that was “Upheld” was one regarding comparison of service costs, because unlike our competitors we do not differentiate in costs/fees between PAYE or CIS claims but in our comparison table we compared our blanket fees to our competitors, although technically correct it was mislabelled and not very clear, obviously as soon as this information came to light we immediately changed the comparison table to be much clearer.
In order to remain completely transparent to both our customers and our competitors, below is an unedited extract directly from the adjudication from the ASA. Continue reading
