    Sounds like you've already exceeded your tax-free threshold and that no refund will be coming your way.. 

    Have you filled in the R40 correctly though?

    Was the total of your statutory interest/compensation (paid as part of the PPI refund) and any normal savings interest received in 2018:19 more than £10k?

    If so a tax return is required.  But you will really just be putting the figures from your R40 onto the Self Assessment return.  It's really not any more complicated than filling in the R40.
