Check your tax code
If you’re employed or get a pension, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) may send you a PAYE coding notice (sometimes known as a ‘P2’). You’ll usually get this before 6 April - the start of the new tax year.
The notice explains how HMRC worked out your tax code (or codes) and how your Personal Allowance has been used.
What to do when you get your PAYE coding notice
Check the details. These include your:
- name and address
- jobs and pensions
- car benefit and fuel allowances
- Personal Saving Allowance
You don’t need to do anything if they look correct.
If you think your PAYE coding notice is wrong, you can update your details using the PAYE coding notice form.
