    Other reasons for NT code 8th Apr 18 at 5:00 PM
    hi

    Just a pride thing really but what other reasons other than BR would there be for having an NT tax code? It's just that we have someone new doing my employer's payroll and I'd like to have a story in case I'm asked...

    cheers

    There is an old post here http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=894047

    I had a very large employer (over 5000 employees) but I did get a call from payroll asking if I knew my tax code had been changed. I told them that I was in dispute with HMRC over a previous family business tax account and that they had admitted their calculations were wrong and I'd paid way too much tax and now we were just haggling about the actual amount - in the meantime they were giving me an NT code while they worked out how much rebate they owed me - it was accepted as a perfectly reasonable response.

    Its also worth mentioning that anyone in payroll who discusses your code with anyone other than you or HMRC is guilty of gross misconduct - and that includes even discussing it with the boss

    Thanks - I'd guessed that I could use a reason something like that

    Some examples here,

    But would someone you don't even know be that interested in your tax code in the first place?
