P45

A P45 is a document that your employer has to give you when you’re leaving your job.

It shows how much tax they deducted from your salary for that year and what your final tax code was.

When you need a P45 form:

  • when you start a new job: so the new employer can deduct the right amount of tax from your salary
  • when you file a Self Assessment tax return.
