I did a short term employed contract from February 2023 - July 2023 and received a P45 at the end. Do I pro-rata the the salary and tax for my 22/2023 tax return? 

I received private health care benefits as well. I presume this is included in the salary.

Or do I need to go back to the employer for a breakdown?

    Weren't you issued with a P60 to summarise your earnings etc up to the end of the tax year ?

    Was the first payment definitely prior to 6 April 2023?

    Have you logged onto your personal tax account? As this will show the reported employment earnings for the 2022/2023 tax year.

    The P45 will only be for the period 6 April 2023 to the date you left in July. And why would you presume the medical benefit was included in your salary. It may be if your employer payrolled but you cannot presume.

    You should have a P60 for the period up until 5th April 23. For 6th April to July you should have a P45, but that will be for tax year 23-24. You'll need those figure for the next tax return unless you take additional work before 5th April 24 and the P45 figures get included on the P60 for 23-24.
    Re private medical, was it shown on your payslips? (many companies show it that way now, effectively as a monthly "income" so should be part of the P60 / P45 income figure I believe.). If not they should have issued a p11d for 22-23, which you should add to your tax return
