Handling HMRC Tax Calculation Letters

Have you or your employee received an HMRC tax calculation letter?

These letters, also known as a P800 or a Simple Assessment letter, are issued by HMRC to employees who have either paid too much or too little tax by the end of the tax year (5 April).

The purpose of these letters is to inform employees how they can receive a tax refund or pay tax owed. As an employer, there's no additional action required on your part regarding these letters. We have a full help guide that explains why an employee might have received a P800 letter >

If an employee owes additional tax, they simply need to pay the specified amount to HMRC, or allow HMRC to adjust their current tax code to deduct the amount.

If you want to find out more, you can read our guide linked above, or visit HMRC's guidance here >
