The call comes from tax recovery specialists Brian Alfred who have claimed back more than £36m for clients in overpaid tax.

According to the firm, around a third of taxpayers are due a rebate in the UK and claims can range from £1,500 to £7,300 for people working in the construction industry.

Workers who are either part of the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) or Pay As You Earn (PAYE) are all eligible to apply and rebates can be claimed for the past four tax years.

However, anyone who fails to put their claim in before Friday will permanently lose the chance to claim a rebate for the 2013/2014 tax year.

Derek Kelly, chief executive of Brian Alfred said his firm was ready to help workers from the Portsmouth area.

He said: ‘Each year millions of pounds of hard-earned money goes unclaimed. The time is now fast approaching to get your tax rebate claims in, as you can only go back four years at a time, so basically if you haven’t claimed a rebate for the year 2013/14, it’s either do it before April 6th or forever lose the opportunity for that year.

‘Whatever your trade or profession, we are here to help you. The tax rebates really can make a difference and it is money that people are entitled to and have worked hard for.’
