Which supplier do you use for your tax back service?

We use our good buddies from Pink Cow for all our tax back stuff.

How much is the fee?

The fee is 8% of your total refund – with a min of $89 and a max of $275. This is taken out of your refund so there is no need to pay up front

How much tax will you get back?

The amount of your tax refund will depend on your individual circumstances. Things taken into account when determining are your gross income, the amount of tax deducted from your income, any allowances withheld and whether or not you have any work related expenses.

How long will my tax back take?

If you are lodging your income tax return at the end of the tax year or for previous years then this should take around 2 to 3 weeks to process.  If you are leaving Australia and claiming a mid-year tax refund, this will take around 8 weeks.

Do you charge for international transfers?

For international transfers, Pinkcow uses a third party broker to obtain the best possible rates for customers – much more competitive than high street bank rates. As a result of this, pinkcow charges an adminstration fee of $50 (inc. GST) for each international transfer.

Certainly a lot easier than filling in all the paperwork and mailing it off. Refund came through quickly and I’m going to use them for my Super as well

Impressed with how easy it was to fill everything out and how quickly it paid into my UK account. Wish I hadn’t put it off for so long!
