PAYE (Pay As You Earn) Refunds is a term used to describe the process of receiving back any overpaid taxes from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). This usually occurs when an individual's tax code is incorrect or when they have overpaid on their taxes. There are a variety of reasons why someone might be overpaying on their taxes, such as changing jobs or tax codes being incorrect. The process of receiving a PAYE refund can seem complex, but there are companies and individuals who specialize in processing these refunds for people. The amount of time it takes to receive a PAYE refund can vary, but it is typically within several weeks to a few months. It's important to remember that you are entitled to this money back if you have overpaid on your taxes, so it's worth checking your tax code and ensuring that everything is correct to avoid overpaying in the future.
