2. P60

Your P60 shows the tax you’ve paid on your salary in the tax year (6 April to 5 April).

If you’re working for your employer on 5 April they must give you a P60. They must provide this by 31 May, on paper or electronically.

You’ll need your P60 to prove how much tax you’ve paid on your salary, eg:

  • to claim back overpaid tax
  • to apply for tax credits
  • as proof of your income if you apply for a loan or a mortgage

Use HMRC’s tax checker if you think you might have paid too much tax.
