What is a P60?
A P60 End of Year Certificate is a statement that shows how much income tax and National Insurance contributions you have paid in the tax year (from 6th April – 5th April the following year).
Why do I need a P60?
A P60 is proof of your salary and the tax you paid for the year. You may be asked to provide a copy of your P60 when you apply for a mortgage or other financial services, so keep it safe.
When will I receive my P60?
It is a legal requirement that all employees working for an employer on 5th April or retired and being paid a pension should receive a P60 by the 31st May at the latest – if you have not received one, you should ask your employer.
Where does my P60 come from?
Your employer or pension provider will issue the P60 from HMRC-generated information. You will receive a P60 for each job if you have more than one job. If you are self-employed, you will not receive one.
Do I need to check my P60?
Once you receive your P60, it is your responsibility to check that all the information is correct, and if it’s wrong, you will need to contact HM Revenue and Customs.
