Thanks for your question.
As this is your only income I would expect your tax code to be 944L. so can I ask
1) When did you start this employment
2) Did you give them a P45 (which details your last employment or details if you claimed Jobseekers or another benefit)
3) If you did no give this employer a P45, did they offer you form P46?
I can then advise how to take this forward
I did have a p45 and handed it to my new employer when i started. I have been employed with my current employer since Jan 2012.
Thanks for your question
That's odd, as you have either been on BR since Jan 2012. or your employer has received notification to change your tax code to BR. Either way, you will need to ring HMRC on 0300 200 3300 as this is the quickest solution and although the opening times are
If you have been issued a P2 notice of coding detailing this change of code to BR, then this would have contained an explanation as to why your tax code had changed, but somewhere along the line, HMRC think this is not your main employment, and there could be a number of reasons for this mistake but the key is get it put right as soon as possible.
If you have been on code BR since Jan 2012 (which I doubt that as that's over a year ago) then earlier tax year refunds will be due.
But ring HMRC as soon as possible as this is clearly wrong, and you do not want to suffer any longer than necessary!
