Use the online calculator to calculate approximately how big a refund you're entitled to. With just a few more clicks, we'll make sure you get your money, quickly and easily.

Your wage and/or income tax is our top priority

Every year, millions of people who work abroad pay wage and/or income tax there every month.

But only a few know that they can potentially have these taxes fully or partially refunded to them at the end of the year by submitting tax applications to the foreign tax authorities.

For example, according to data from Stiftung Warentest (Finanztest, May 2009), statistical surveys indicate that taxpayers in the Federal Republic of Germany who do not submit a tax return lose an average refund of 900 euros per year.

In addition, various countries (Denmark) require taxpayers to file a return on their own each year.
