Company hasn't paid tax - PAYE

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

I've been looking through my payslips and noticed the company I worked for hasn't paid any tax! I was employed as PAYE, I don't believe I gave them a P45 or P60 when I first started and spoke to HMRC who claim its my responsibility. 

 

Surely when you work as PAYE it's the companies responsibility for paying my tax? 

 

Any help is much appreciated. 

Thanks

Thanks Andy,

 

I've had a read and I guess I need to wait untill HMRC calculate my tax this April before I can complain to them about my employer. 

 

Also my employer never used a tax code since the start of my employment which I assume isnt "taking reasonable care" as they should have used one from the start of my employment 20 weeks ago? 

 

Thanks

Thanks for the replies! 

 

No they didn't take any tax at all but they had a tax code from the start. 

 

I didn't, I rarely checked the payslips because when I'm working on PAYE I expect the company to do PAYE. 

 

I spoke to HMRC gonna have to put a compla in when I get the forms, as I don't believe the company took reasonable steps to pay the tax.

At the end of this if you have not had the tax deducted then you owe HMRC tax and will have to pay it. 

 

There could have been a case if tax was deducted and not paid to HMRC, the complaint against the company seems to be that they are possibly incompetent and they may not have paid any Employers NI, you will will also have to pay employee NI on top of any Income Tax not paid.

 

Do you still work for the company have you asked them why?

Not anymore, I think they were just incompetent. I have come to the same conclusion unfortunately. I will still complain though. 

 

I'm not impressed with their actions especially during this covid nonsense when I can't get no work anyway and 12 months to pay off the tax underpayment is shit. Might aswell get prepared for her majesty's pleasure. 

Sorry they paid NI not tax

if they paid NI, were you by any chance on a NT Tax code?

No it was 1250L I guess that's the tax allowance limit code?
