In regards to Personal Tax Allowance on new style ESA for example, I understand it's taxable and comes off my allowance, but in terms of backpay would this have an affect on 2023-2024 tax year as I had back pay in June 2023 for ESA from August 2021 to June 2023 or would they adjust it so it would be in 2021-2022 tax years and so forth. 

Many thanks

    As far as I am aware, it's allocated to the tax years that the payment covers so in your case that would be the tax years 2021-2022, 2022-2023 and 2023-2024.
