    Hi peeps

    Just informed my P45 from my temp job has gone missing. I have already filled out a P46 as part of my induction paperwork for BUPA, but as it is close to the end of the tax year, I think I am going to get taxed heavily <?>, and then need to chase it back from Inland Revenue, or something like that?

    Can anyone advise - this is all new to me.

    Thank you!!

    Nah, not a problem don't worry.

    Your new employer will put you on an "emergency" coding, which is effectively the single person coding on a 'month one' basis.

    So for March you'll get paid as if it was your first and only month's pay. Basically, unless you're a higher rate tax payer you won't suffer, or benefit either way.

    April onwards you will be taxed on a normal code basis until HMRC issue your new coding

    Hope this helps

    Your old employer isn't legally allowed to re-issue a P45 if the first one gets lost. You're doing the right thing with the P46. Depending on your personal circumstances you may end up slightly over-taxed this month and if so, you can't reclaim it til the tax year ends now. if you are a bit over-taxed, add it up after April 5th and write to your local HMRC office to reclaim it, including copies of your P60 and final payslip from your last company. If you've worked most of the year, any excess tax is likely to be really small though.
