Working out of London in a Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme Visa - how does my tax filing work?

I know that if I work in Canada as usual, I file taxes and it's pretty easy and I usually get a nice sum back. Am I still entitled to that sum? I was on 25K GBP salary, then 30K GBP salary, then 50K GBP salary, starting on January 2015 and up to present day. I've never had a job abroad before, so I'm wondering if there's anything special about me being here on a visa - [perhaps I get all the tax I paid back? ;)]

You will have to call HMRC and answer few questions like: Is your salary under 100K, do you have any other sources of income etc. If the answer is NO to all those questions, they will send you a letter stating that you don't need to file a tax return and they will not bother you again.

Unless you have complicated tax arrangements, you will almost never need to file a tax return in the UK and if you're on a steady salary for a single employer you'll likely never get a refund. However, you may be able to claim some of the tax you've paid when you leave at the end of your Tier 5.
