Personal tax – form

Income Tax: leaving the UK - getting your tax right (P85)

Use the online form service to claim tax relief or any tax refund you're owed if you've left or are about to leave the UK.



If you’ve left or are about to leave the United Kingdom

To claim tax relief or any tax refund you’re owed and to tell HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) about any UK income you continue to get, you can either:

  • use the online service (sign-in or set up a Government Gateway account)
  • fill in form on-screen, print and post to HMRC

If you use the online form, you’ll get a reference number that you can use to track the progress of your form.

Before you start the postal form

If you’re using an older browser, eg Internet Explorer 8, you’ll need to update it or use a different browser. Find out more about browsers.

You’ll need to fill in the postal form fully before you can print it. You can’t save a partly completed form so you should gather all your information together before you start to fill it in.

Send the completed form to:

You don’t need to include a street name, city name or PO box in the address.
