Im sure that most Polish people do claim a certain amount back.
that`s becuz if they work here, they have to pay taxes here but also in poland. so pay twice as much tax. it`s going to get abolished soon, the polish government says. so probably won`t be able to claim tax back in the uk.
you had you baby here didn't you so I am assuming you got hospital treatment, you say you had to have time off sick so I am assuming you got sick pay, you get child benefit....Ive paid into the system for 20 years so by my reckoning you have had more than I have!
i got my hospital treatment and i got maternity allowance, have been getting child benefit and child tax credit. mind you my partner is british, so is my baby.
as of my time off sick, i didn`t want it but was physically unable to work. i suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum, only 1% of pregnant women suffer from it and i would not wish that to my worst enemy as it is unexplainable how terribly sick i felt throughout my pregnancy. since you are a woman, it might happen to you or maybe you already have children but luckily never went throught that but it`s worth reading about on the internet and the awareness of it has to be raised.
i assume so yes, i may not be correct exactly on the number of years but i'm sure its five. Maybe somebody will correct me but i'm sure you can find out for sure on the net
i`ll do some research on the net mate, thanx :)
