In August 2011 I left a job because the company was late with payments, stopped providing pay slips, and failed to provide my P60. I took them to the employment tribunal which found in my favour - I was employed by them from March 2007 to August 2011 and they owe me the outstanding wages (still yet to receive). Fortunately I went straight into another job on a short term contract. When I finished I was out of work for two months in which time I signed on for the first time. I found work before any benefits - however, I received a letter from Jobseeker's saying they couldn't pay me JSA because the last two years of NI contribution weren't up to date.The Tax office has also sent me a cheque for over payment of tax over the short term contract - the amount they recognise as me earning is all from the short term contract. I want to follow it up with the tax office (haven't cashed the cheque yet) but I'm worried I will find out my employer never paid my tax for all the time I was there and I will end up with the bill. I have dug out a P60 from 2007-2008, but only payslips from 2008-9 & 2009-10. 2010-11 was the year I left and when down the ET route. If I contact the tax office will I be liable for outstanding tax and NI if it wasn't paid?

Is the information I can provide the tax office enough for prove my employer was suppose to pay my tax though? yes, I had a contract and yes they certainly took tax off before i saw any money but my record keeping is poor and i never called the tax people when i was going through the ET process.
I'm just following up with you to see how everything is going. Did my answer help?UK-Justice
