HMRC Loan Charge Refunds

Apply for a refund or waiver from the Disguised Remuneration Repayment Scheme 2020

Check if you qualify for a refund of Income Tax and National Insurance contributions paid, or a waiver of payments being made, in settlement of disguised remuneration scheme use.

This guidance is for those who used disguised remuneration avoidance schemes between 6 April 1999 and 5 April 2016, from which disguised remuneration loans were made, and settled the tax due with HMRC on or after 16 March 2016 and before 11 March 2020. If this applies to you and you paid some or all of the tax or National Insurance contributions voluntarily to avoid the loan charge, you may be eligible for a refund or waiver.

If you’re eligible for a refund or waiver, we’ll write to you as soon as we can inviting you to apply. We’ll provide you with an application form and the details of how to apply. Attached is an example application form (PDF, 246KB, 1 page) for information.

If you’ve not heard from us by 1 October 2020 and you think you’re eligible for a refund or waiver, contact us by phone on: 03000 534 226 or email at:

Tax does have to be taxing.
