Important information about your P60
Due to a change in the PAYE tax reference we use to report your information to HMRC in October 2016, your P60 shows two sets of taxable pay and tax paid figures as well as a total figure. Any earnings between April and September 2016 will appear on your P60 as figures from a “previous employment” (centre of the page) whilst any earnings from October 2016 to March 2017 will appear on your P60 as figures from “this employment” (right of the page).
If you need to complete a tax return for the 2016/17 tax year, you will need to use both the figures from the previous employment (centre of the page) in addition to the figures from this employment (right of the page).
The P60 advises you not to do so as in most circumstances the previous employment figures would be on a P45 and you would include those figures instead. P45s were not issued when we changed the PAYE scheme as from our perspective and yours, your pension had not changed, so for this year you will need to use the full figures from your P60.
