    Payslips Online 13th Jul 17 at 9:46 AM
    I Wonder to Know what do you think about the Payslips Online Services Provided by UK's Payroll Company

    My friend has lost P60 from 2013-2014 and has now started a new job. She didn't get a P45 from her previous employer as they have gone bust and do not reply to any enquiry (probably fearing creditors!). So she is now taxed in her new employment with no personal allowance whatsoever, which obviously increases the tax she pays.

    There is a website payslipsonline that says it can get you a P60 & P45. It charges anything between 20 and 40 (depending on the P60 year) for the privilege. Anybody has used it? Are they legit? Do they take the money and run? Is there anything cheaper? Could you Please Suggest me the Better option or It was the Cheapest and Best

    Thanks for any feedback

    Speak to your payroll dept. Ask to complete a New Starter Checklist (should be offered by all employers if no P45 handed in but some forget) this will enable them to use the emergency tax code. HMRC should then send the employer details of previous pay and tax along with any tax code adjustment if required eventually. A call to HMRC may speed up the process and if your new employer will not accept a New Starter Checklist then call HMRC.

    I would be very wary of anyone offering anything relating to earnings who were not your employer.

    A P60 for 2013/14 is not relevant to the current year.

    HMRC should have her previous pay and tax details from her last employer and will be able to update her record and issue a correct tax code and pay and tax details to her current employer.

    If your employer doesn't know what a starter checklist is (and it doesn't sound like they do if your friend has not been asked to complete one), then the form can be downloaded here:

    It's a replacement for the former P46 form that used to be used where a new starter had no P45 form

    As explained, HMRC will then inform the employer of the correct tax code to use for your friend.

    As your friend has started work and been paid at least once already I'd suggest that it could be too late to do a New Starter checklist, and that the most sensible option (the alternative suggested by chrisbur and sherambler) is that she contacts HMRC herself to explain the situation so that the issue the correct tax code to her employer.
