Hello, if you have any questions or need further clarification after reading my answer please let me know.

 

Thank you for your question..

 

P60 should show Pay and Income Tax details for the tax year covering

-previous employment(s)

- this employment

- total for year

 

You would have been given a P45 when you left your previous company to join the new employer.

 

If you need more information please let me know before you rate my service.

Unfortunately I was,nt given a P45 or any other information from the dissolved company.My current employer has given me a P60 with current earnings from March of when I started as details could not be verified.


 


Is this correct and acceptable under the circumstances.


 


Thanks.

Paul, thank you for your reply.

 

You must have some payslips from your previous employer before the company was dissolved.

 

In order to establish your total earnings for the tax year you may have to resort to payslips (showing gross earnings and deductions) plus your earnings as shown on P60.

Hi


 


I did not keep any payslips from my old employer,


 


Thanks

Paul, thank you for your reply.

 

The only other way to ascertain what you earned from your previous employer is to seek help from the Tax Office. You will have to provide them with sufficient information to enable them to help you. e.g.

- dates of employment

- date of leaving the employer

- employer name and business address

- PAYE tax reference

 

I am sorry I can't be anymore helpful. You need basic information to ascertain what your earnings were from your previous employment.

Hi


 


How would the tax office know what I have earn,t ect,I do not have a PAYE reference from my old company,


 


Regards

Expert:  taxadvisor.uk replied 3 years ago.

Paul, if you give the tax office basic information you have they may be able to link it to that employer and give you what information they hold pertaining to your employment with that employer.

I think we have exhausted all avenues.
