Do you spend most of your time offshore? Whether you work in the shipping industry or on a cruise ship. You may be due a seafarers tax refund.
According to HM Revenue & Customs, certain criteria must be met in order to qualify for a Seafarers Tax Refund, more officially known as a Seafarers Earnings Deduction (SED) or the Foreign Earnings Deduction (FED).
