Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.

When you leave the UK, be sure to send a Form P85 to your UK tax office as you quit these shores. The Form provides for the refund of tax overpaid on departure.

Hello thank you . Is there a way to know how much it will be ? And is it only the tax overpaid that we will receive or the tax that we paid in general ? I have read that after my tax back I can’t go back to work in U.K. for 5 years

Balderdash and Piffle, The date you depart will determine the level of tax due and anything over that will be refunded. You can certainly return later.

Ok thank you .
I am not sure that i am clear enough, sorry for my English.
In which case when you ask back your income taxes, you are not able to come back to work for 5 years?

Absolute rubbish!

Ahhahaha ok that is a good point . Is there a Way to know approximately how much we will have back?

Difficult to compute at this stage, don't worry. it will all come out in the wash so to speak.
