Tax Fees & Payments
If the case is successful and you accept our fee, we will raise our invoice against the Tax refund offer HMRC issue. Our fee is charged based on the value of the tax refund that is offered.

For example,

HMRC issue a tax refund of £500.

Belmond Tax Claims invoice at 30% + VAT = £180

If HMRC send payment of the tax refund to Belmond Tax Claims they will deduct the £180 from the £500 and send the balance of £320 to you.

If HMRC send payment of the tax refund to you then you must contact Belmond Tax Claims to pay their invoice of £180.
