    Taxed for pay I知 not receiving

    Taxed for pay I知 not receiving 16th Apr 19 at 2:02 PM
    I am a casual/bank worker so effectively on a 0 hours contract (suits me as I am at uni) I submit a timesheet each month and get paid accordingly. Last month an 選T issue meant I didn稚 get paid on payday. I was told I could either have an advanced payment or wait until the next month. Obviously I couldn稚 go the month without pay so opted for the advanced payment. They didn稚 tell me that I壇 be taxed 20% and 10% national insurance on this, which meant I got considerably less than I should have (shouldn稚 have been taxed at all as it was a low amount)

    It ended up being two advanced payments as something else was messed up. I was told I would receive the tax I overpaid in next months pay. I have now got a copy of my payslip for this month which I値l be paid next week.

    The issue is that with the advanced payment they then add the payment onto my payslip as if I am going to be paid it, then deduct it (minus the money I am owed for overpaying tax last month). So I will be paying tax and national insurance on 」1300 (my pay for this month + last months pay which was then deducted) despite the fact I will not be paid this amount and if it wasn稚 for the advance payment my tax would be 」0 and NI would be 」29. I am paying 」80 NI and 」63.60 tax

    Surely this isn稚 correct and I am losing out? What can I do?

    So 1250L is the code for this new tax year. Presumably it was 1185L last year.
    The problem is that the "advance" was not actually an advance but, especially because it was the final pay due in the last tax year, should really have been processed manually using the tax code.

    Had you actually done other work for them in the 2018-19 tax year? (Your OP does not actually make this absolutely certain.)
