2.1 Our contract. These Terms are the terms on which we will work with you to initiate and progress a tax rebate application on your behalf and will form the contract between us (Contract) once we confirm that we have accepted your request to process your tax rebate application. We have a legal obligation to supply our service in conformity with this Contract.

2.2 The main characteristics of the service that we provide. Under this Contract, when you request us to undertake a tax rebate application on your behalf, you also offer to assign to us your rights, title and interest in the amount of any rebate that is achieved. Should we agree to provide our services to you, we will both accept your request to provide the services and accept the assignment of your rights, title and interest in any rebated amount. Upon receiving any tax rebate, we shall remit the appropriate amount to you in accordance with these Terms. Our services also include filing returns for you.

2.3 These Terms tell you who we are (see clause 1), how we will undertake the rebate application (see clauses 1 and 2), how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. Your particular attention is drawn to the provisions of clause 8 regarding our obligation to pay sums to you from the rebated amount.

2.4 Entire agreement. The Contract is the entire agreement between you and us in relation to its subject matter. You acknowledge that you have not relied on any oral or written statement, promise or representation or assurance or warranty that is not set out in the Contract. Your rights and remedies under Irish consumer law are protected, including those available under the Consumer Rights Act 2022.

3.1 Placing your order. Please follow the onscreen prompts to place a request. You may only submit a request using the method set out on the Site. Each request is an offer by you to assign your rights, title and interest to any tax rebate following a transfer of your and/or your spouse’s marriage tax allowance subject to these Terms.

3.2 Correcting input errors. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please check the order carefully before confirming it. You are responsible for ensuring that your order is complete and accurate. Please see your obligations below in clause 6.

3.3 Acknowledging receipt of your order. After you place your order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received it.

3.4 If we cannot accept your request. If we are unable to accept your request for any reason, we will inform you of this in writing and we will not charge you anything. No Contract will have come into existence between us.

3.5 Your reference number. If we accept your request, we will assign a unique reference number to the request and tell you what it is when we forward it (“Order Confirmation”). This is when the Contract between us is formed. It will help us if you can tell us the unique reference number whenever you contact us.

3.6 Commencement and Duration. We will begin to progress the request at the end of the cooling off period set out in clause 4.1. The estimated duration of an application for a tax rebate is usually between 6 and 12 weeks from the date that we begin to perform the Contract, though as this is dependent on a number of factors, including the cooperation of the Taxing Authority, we cannot guarantee any dates. Other timings for performance may be given in the Order Confirmation (as per clause 5.4. below). Should our service include the filing of returns every year for you, the Contract will endure until that service is cancelled by you or our authorisation to act as your agent ends. These Terms and the separate authorisation terms under which you authorise us to act as agent are an explicit permission from you for the submission by us of an application for a tax rebate and/or the filing by us of an income tax return in each year for which the authorisation endures.

3.7 Where you wish the performance of the Contract by us to begin during the cooling off period described in clause 4.1, we shall require you to make an express written request to this effect and we shall request you to acknowledge that, once the Contract has been fully performed, you will no longer have the right to cancel the contract under these Terms.

3.8 If you do not provide us with information. If we are unable to progress the request due to you failing to promptly provide us with requested information, including any identification documents required under clause 6, we may terminate the Contract. Should we termination the Contract on this basis, all rights, title and interests in any rebate from the Taxing Authority shall automatically be re-assigned back to you. We will not be responsible for any delay in progressing the request, or for not completing the request, if these arise as a result of you failing to provide us with requested information within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

3.9 Non-provision of tax advice. Please note, for the avoidance of any doubt, that we do not provide any tax advice of any nature whatsoever and nothing on our website or any correspondence with you should be taken as tax advice.


4.1 Where you are a consumer, you may cancel the Contract if you notify us as set out in clause 2 within 14 calendar days of your receipt of the Order Confirmation (“cooling off period”). You need not give a reason.

4.2 You will lose the right to cancel the Contract once we have completed the processing of your request, even if the 14-day cooling off period is still running.

4.3 To cancel the Contract, you must email us at support@taxrebate.ie. Please include details of your order (e.g. your unique reference number) to help us to identify the Contract. Your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the email. For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you email us before midnight on the last day of the cancellation period.

4.4 You can also electronically fill in and submit the model cancellation form or any other unequivocal statement on this Site. If you use this option, we will communicate to you an acknowledgement of receipt of such a cancellation on a durable medium (e.g. by e-mail) without delay.

4.5 Please note that, notwithstanding any position taken to the contrary by the Taxing Authority, the giving of notice to the Taxing Authority by you, seeking to cancel the Services, does not constitute a valid cancellation for the purposes of these Terms and, accordingly, we will not be bound by such. You may only cancel the Contract in accordance with these Terms and not otherwise.

4.6 Effects of cancellation: All rights, title and interests in any rebate from the Taxing Authority shall automatically be re-assigned back to you save in the case of Services provided pre-cancellation which result in a rebate post cancellation, in which case that rebate shall be processed in the usual way under these Terms as if that rebate had not been re-assigned. We shall otherwise cease all Services immediately.


5.1 Services and Price: We engage with the Taxing Authority to determine whether there are entitlements to tax rebates. We also apply for and obtain any rebates that we have determined are due. The total price of the services inclusive of tax is described in clause 8. Our services include the filing of income tax returns. The Services come to an end each year when we determine that there is no entitlement to tax rebates or where the rebates have been recovered and the total price has been paid. Services may continue into subsequent years in accordance with your authorisation of us to act as your agent.

5.2 Descriptions and illustrations. Any descriptions or illustrations on our Site are published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the what we do and how we operate. These Terms shall be read as having precedence over any such descriptions or illustrations.

5.4 Time for performance. We will use reasonable care and skill to meet any performance dates specified in the Order Confirmation, but any such dates are estimates only and failure to perform our obligations by such dates will not of itself give you the right to terminate the Contract.
