    Tax advice required please

    16 year old school student received 1st payslip today, works 8 hours per week, paid no NI, but paid Tax, my question's is thus,
    Should she be paying tax as a 16y0 student?.
    Is this emergency tax?.
    Can the tax be claimed back, if so how?.

    thanks in advance, and a merry Christmas.

    You should provide their tax code to see whether it is on the emergency code or not. Presumably they will earn less than the threshold and therefore yes, they will be able to claim it back.

    All people pay tax, student or otherwise.

    shouldnt be paying any tax but her employer probably using an emergency tax code-happens all the time but its just utter laziness on her employers part-can be claimed back tho-it amazes me how many employers do this to seasonal workers-everyone has a personal allowance before they pay any tax.

    check the tax code 603L is emergency tax

    ring tax office give your national insurance number they will either redirect you or might be lucky and get the right office = ask them about your tax they will tell you yes or no and change code to correct one - if any money owed should be in next pay packet

    He needs to fill in a P38(S) form ]HMRC linky

    you can claim it back before april, i got £300 bakck ;-)

    No student pays, tax or NI, i am only 16 and get my gross pay every month, we dont legally have to pay tax or NI, think its a mistake on your daughter pay slip :thumbsup:

    Students do pay NI , you may not pay your NI if you are earning below £98 a week roughly.

    Students are in no way different to anybody else when it comes to tax or NI.

    Everyone has to pay NI and tax if they exceed the threshold - currently 603L is the standard single person tax coding.

    If the code on your daughters payslip is BR or 603L M1/W1 then it needs to be investigated.

    You can ring the tax office and they will issue a new coding to your daughter - alternatively if she has recently started the job then she should have filled in a P46 if she didn't have a P45 which can provide the same information as a P38.. however a P38 needs to be filled in with place of study detail too.

    It is easy enough to sort out - the easiest way is for the correction to go through on her next payslip and get the tax refunded.

    Last point - where the tax office are concerned I would chase, chase and chase again until you get it sorted as they can be really slow.

    They are. If a student only works during holidays from college/university, and doesn't exceed £6035 tax isn't paid, but NI is.

    Which is the same rule for absolutely everybody, nothing to do with being a student.
