The tax code is just a series of numbers and letters that tells HMRC how much tax you should be paying.
The numbers in your tax code tell your employer or pension provider how much tax-free income you are entitled to in that tax year.
|L||You’re getting the standard tax-free Personal Allowance. This tax code is the most common one|
|M||10% of your partner’s personal allowance goes to you|
|N||10% of your personal allowance goes to your spouse|
|S||You’re using the Scottish rate of income tax|
|T||Other: your tax code includes other calculations|
|Y||You were born before 6 April 1938, and get a higher personal allowance|
|0T||Your Personal Allowance has been used up or you’ve started a new job|
|BR||You’re getting the basic rate|
|D0||You’re getting the higher rate|
|D1||You’re getting the additional rate|
|NT||You’re not paying tax on this income|
|K||You have income that isn’t being taxed another way and it’s worth more than your tax-free allowance|
