Have you claimed Widening Access Training tax and NI refunds?

Advice

We recently alerted members that if they worked in the NHS and had attended a Widening Access Training Scheme, they were potentially eligible for refunds on income tax and national insurance they had paid during the period they were attending a WAT course. 

We would like to hear from members who have attended a WAT full-time course between September 1999 and March 2015 and have successfully applied for and received refunds. 

The information we are looking for is the paperwork or supporting information you completed.

We cannot trace anything of note online and assume references to this initiative have been superseded by apprenticeships.  

When we have more understanding of the WAT Scheme itself, we can develop guidance on who may then be eligible to apply for income tax and national insurance refunds.

Applying for NI refunds can have implications for any future claims for state benefits and state pension and the aim of our guidance will be to help members avoid any problems.

Please email if you think you can help.
