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.
