Living and working abroad has many advantages. You can learn about a different culture,  visit some really  cool sights and experience new things all while saving for your education.  A few weeks of snowboarding, kayaking or swimming with dolphins does wonders for relieving the burden  of everyday monotony.  While you’re having the time of your life probably the last thing on your mind is claiming back overpaid income tax.  Read on for some tips on how to do just that!

While working abroad, your employer deducts income tax from your earnings and often he deducts more than what you really need to pay because your annual income may be less than the personal allowance in that country.  The good news is that you can get this money back by claiming an income tax refund if you know how – but just a warning, this can be tricky if you’re not familiar with the local tax filing procedures and required documentation.  You may want to rely on the experts to help you, so check out Taxback.com.

About our business, Study and Go Abroad is the 'go to' site for Canadians looking to study abroad, travel, intern or volunteer. We organize fairs twice a year in various cities in Canada, and I'd recommend getting down to one of them to check out all the exciting options. As for me, I'm a business woman and a travel junkie! I have always had a passion for travel and for experiencing new cultures. Brought up in England, I traveled Europe in my teens and early 20s. I have lived and worked on 3 continents; Europe, Africa and North America. I have traveled extensively worldwide both for work and for fun - and still can't believe how much of the world there is still to see!
