    None of these prices in my SD today, the Olay was marked at 15, the hair gel at 1.75. The Sure williams was marked full price too

    There was a cheap Nivea deo, but none left.

    The Sure Williams has been 22p in all 3 stores I have visited in the past week and still marked 2.19 in one of them.

    Things can differ between stores as some are slower at reducing than others, although I was told last week it's the same price in all stores but I know it isn't through experience.

    If the Olay is scanning 15 in yours which is half price sounds like it is on it's way down keep checking. Last week the style freedom stuff was only 55p in B'mth still 1 odd in P00le but this week it had gone down to 55p. Once you know what is reduced in one store the chances are it will eventually be that price in another I often find DD's store in surrey is behind mine down here. HTHs

    They don't always change the prices fuzzy, it is worth getting them checked.

    When I got the 50p Balmi it was still marked at 4.99, some teenage girls discussed getting it but went for one that was 'cheaper' lol.

    Same here E, both stores I bought it from it still had a 4.99 SEL.

    The staff in all the SD's I visit are lovely and don't mind scanning bits for me.

    Ditto - The Williams is still marked at full price in my SD but the SAs are very obliging in price checking for me
    and they know I donate a lot of the goods bought, for charity raffle pamper hampers

    A question please for the work based accountants

    Errant sons P60 has come through so I printed it off for him for his file.
    He hasn't had a P45 as far as I know - this is the one in three parts, one for keeping and one for giving to the new employer - have I got this correct? Its only been a few weeks so I expect it all takes time ..

    Whilst I was putting a copy in the file I came across the P45 for the previous employer. Will there also be a P60 from them - same tax year? Possibly this will come in the post.

    We are living in dread of having a short tax form to complete at some point during the year. OH had one when he swapped jobs one August ...

    Can I ask what people use to line their kitchen cupboards?

    I didn't bother much in the old kitchen apart from the pan drawers but I want to keep this one nice

    Hello everyone. RL overwhelming and I am trying to catch up now.

    I got some free lino offcuts from the carpet shop and use them to line cupboards, especially for pans (less noisy when you put them away) or tins or anything potentially damp like under the sink. Under the sink I also put washing up liquid and other stuff in plastic boxes so that if they leak or drip, it goes into an easily-cleaned plastic box and I don't have to empty the whole space to clean it.

    To my knowledge you only get a P60 when you are employed by the company on 5 April

    So you keep the P45 from the previous employment and that!!!8217;s your record

    Evening all,

    I am going to buy a lay-z-spa on homebase site tonight as offers are on. Can't see any further discount or TCB anywhere but thought I'd ask here if anyone knows how to get it any cheaper or if anyone has a spa and has any advice before I take the plunge....literally!

    Thanks

    ive noticed 1000 points on nectar for exploring uk on VIRGIN TRAINS
    Originally posted by HILLBERN
    thanks for this, its new, wasn't there yesterday.

    It says

    3.Make a booking on either West Coast or East Coast services for travel up to and including 17 July 2018

    As it takes a month for the points to be added does the Elite think its worth risking sending our feral virtual children on their usual adventure via East Coast but ASAP?
    Or would V west coast be a safer option.
    I am worried about VEC falling off the nectar list altogether ..

    I've also got other offers for 500 points - too much to hope that I would get both.

    I would think its risky. If you needed to wait 28 days to chase, would they be able to verify?

    You get only one P60 and it is from the employer you are working for on the 5th April, P45 are used for when you leave an employer during a tax year the information on a P45 gets transferred to your current employer file where they have to put it under income from previous employment this is shown on your P60 as in previous employment and the wage you have earned with current employer is shown as in this employment
    P45 come in 3 parts Part 1A you keep Part 2 and 3 you give to your new employer one they keep and one they complete and send to HMRC but that is obsolete now as everything is done on line the P45 is issued on the last pay date so if your monthly it will be at the end of the month
    You need to check your P60 to make sure his previous employments have been added if not then you will have to contact HMRC or better still
    You can set him up on HMRC with his own user ID and this will tell you his employment history for the year you only need his NI number and personal details to set him up

    Years ago you used to get a P60 from every employer you work for within a tax year, I used to do hundreds it was a real pain handwriting them all, plus you could only issue one P60 per person per year, it use to cause so much trouble, its all changed now you can re-issue a P60 when ever you need to
