    Short-term role at Asda, should I have been taxed? 8th Jan 18 at 5:26 AM
    So, on my final shift the other night, I received my payslip for the first couple of weeks worth of shifts.

    On the payslip it has "Taxable pay" as £683.09, with the following deductions:

    N.I. A - £6.61
    Income Tax - £136.60

    Given I came into this role after a period of unemployment, this seems odd to me.

    did you hand in a p45 in time?

    if you have been taxed and don't owe it, then it will catch up and you will see it being returned once you do

    Tax has been deducted at 20% so suggests either BR code or 0T.
    This suggests that your payroll dept has not received a P45 or new starter declaration allowing emergency tax to be used.

    You say that " came into this role after a period of unemployment" and "My P45 from my previous job was handed in"
    Your P45 from your previous job should have been handed in to the jobcentre when you signed on and the jobcentre issues a P45 for your new employer.

    In the first instance contact your payroll dept to see what they have ie old P45 ? Any new starter declaration if so which section did you fill in A B or C? Have you had a P45 yet from jobcentre?
