View Here : How To Get A P45 From Previous Employer
Thread Starter. Your employer might not be able to give you a replacement P45, however they are required by law to provide a ‘statement of earnings’ for the last 6 years. A statement of earnings is sufficient replacement for a P45 or P60 and can be used to claim your tax refund from the Inland Revenue.
However, if you lose your P45, your employer can ask you to fill out a ‘starter checklist’. If there’s a problem with your tax code call HMRC at 0300 200 3300 or contact them online. Your tax code is the code that appears on your tax documents and is usually a number followed by one or two letters.
Thanks in advsnce. Because an employer can take the correct tax code from the P45 immediately. With a P46 they do a 'best guess' before sending it onto the tax office who then reply to you both - a longer time to get it right. Tax will adjust in year once the correct code is applied, usually.
Answers. You only need a P45 if you get a new job in the same tax year. There's a chance you paid too much tax in the year when you left your previous employer. Get in touch with the tax office that deals with your new employer, give them as much information as you can, and they'll sort it out.
how do i get a p45 again? i lost the one from my previous employer... whats the quickest way to get one? i need to sort out my tax problem and i was told i need to send in my p45, when i started my new work i filled in a p46....currently im being taxed to much and i was told sending the p45 will be amend the problem and i will be refunded any ...
You should, however ask your employer for a form P46 so that you can sign to confirm this is your only job. As far as previous employer is concerned, write reminding them that it is a legal requirement that a P45 is issued and if you dont get one, you will be infomring HMRC.
