    can I claim tax back? 7th Sep 17 at 12:47 PM

    I'm recently out of work and looking for another one right now. I used to work part time (due to child care) and earn below the threshold so I don't pay tax.

    I'm hoping to find another permanent part time job but if I take a temp 3 months full time job, will I be able to claim any tax back? I assumed everything (my earning and tax) will show on my next year P60 ( if I managed to get a permanent job). What happen if I'm between jobs? will the agency be the one issued the P60?

    It would be better to get onto the correct tax code with your new employer so that you paid the correct tax, which depending on your earnings could be no tax.
    Firstly do you have a P45 from last employer if so what is the tax code on it and is there an X after the tax code.

    If you work PAYE and have the correct tax code allocated to the job then you will pay the right amount of tax, or none if your earnings for the year are below the personal allowance. Worry about reclaiming overpaid tax when it happens.
