All that you have to know about your P60

It is compulsory for an employer to provide their employees with a P60 by the 31st May 2019.

What is a P60?

In the UK and Ireland, a P60 (End of Year Certificate) is a statement issued to taxpayers at the end of a tax year. It is important a taxpayer does not destroy the P60 forms issued to them, as they form a vital part of the proof that tax has been paid.

What is shown on my P60?

A P60 document shows an employee's taxable earnings in a specific tax year. It will show the amount of deductions taken from pay such as tax, national insurance and student loans, and it will also show whether any statutory payments have been received within the tax year.

Why do I need a P60?

A P60 is very useful if you need to prove your earnings or deductions for a specific tax year. It is a highly recognized document and it can be used for obtaining a mortgage or claiming tax credits, for example.

What do I need to do if my P60 is incorrect?

P60 information can be checked by using your payslips. If your P60 is showing any incorrect information, then please contact your employer and explain why it is incorrect. Your employer can issue you with a new P60, marked as a replacement, or give you a letter which explains the changes to your P60.

I have lost my P60

If you have lost or mislaid your P60 then please contact your employer and they will issue you with a replacement copy. It is also possible to obtain the details through HMRC personal tax account service.
