    Lower that it should be yes - it would have been 522L.

    Having a lower code would mean he paid more tax than normal. However there could be many reasons for this such as receiving a taxable benefit such as private health insurance, company car or it could have been an underpayment of tax from a previous year that had to be collected.

    He would normally have received a coding notice explaining the different tax code.

    Each of these higher by £60 so you paid less tax. If they are wrong you owe HMRC tax. You have received an allowance - could be uniform washing or professional subs or something similar.
    0503L for year ending 2007

    This one is exactly what it should have been.

    Receiving a state pension or other income that is paid gross but is taxable?

    If none of these apply and he really can't remember then phone HMRC.
