Re: Social Charges - here we go again!

I've finally had a letter today stating my claim for the tax years 2015, 2016, 2017 has been accepted with a breakdown of the refund for each year. The payment will be paid automatically (as long as I am up-to-date) with my tax payments.

However, there is no mention of any interest on the refunds, so the claim isn't quite finished yet...

Re: Social Charges - here we go again!

Received a cheque for our refund in respect of our declaration for 2016.

What surprised me was that it was put into an envelope and "posted" into the ATM inside the bank just before lunch yesterday, and the amount was shown in our account when I logged in about 5 hours later.

"I can't blooming believe it - they've now just sent a breakdown of interest and I tell you what, it's a lot more than you'd get in a bank deposit account.
10% For the 2015, paid in 2016
6.4% for the following year paid in 2017
3.85% on the amount paid in 2018"

Shouldn't the interest be more than that?

Approximating (no compound interest)
For 2015: Jul 2016-Nov 2019 is 1190 days = 3.25 years at 4%/year so 13%
For 2016: Jul 2017 - Nov 2019 is 820 days = 2.25 years at 4% so 9%
For 2017: Jul 2018 - Nov 2019 is 460 days = 1.25 years at 4% so 5%

Re: Social Charges - here we go again!

I have just got round to making a claim for another social charge repayment, having successfully made one several years ago.

What are people doing about this year when we seem to be paying no tax or charges but this year’s assessment will be used to fix next year’s deductions which will be higher if social charges are included?

Just a thought.
Ticking over, just about.

Just waiting until something is decided.

I'll keep the current prélèvement until then. You can always go online and change the figure at a later date if you can work out what a changed figure might be. Or ask the tax office to work out the new figure you might be charged and make the change for you.
