Hello there,

I noticed that my tax code has changed from 0T to 999T on my payslips.

What does this mean?

Thanks in advance

T is used "When HMRC needs to review some items with the employee"

You'll not get taxed as much and will probably get some tax back on your next payslip. You should contact Hmrc to make sure this is the correct tax code for you.

You need to phone Hmrc up.

The T is for 'tax dodger', I think.

Means you have not sorted out your tax papers properly and are placed on a higher tax code. Ring the tax office and find out why its changed and what they want, often a simple issue.

if it has a number it means you are tax free to the amount.
it happens with agencies alot, you can share you allowance with more than one company

thanks for the replies guys. looks like i will need to contact HMRC

You have to add a zero at the end of the tax code number. You now have a Personal tax free allowance of £9990.

Reading about the troubles with HMRC, you might be put on hold for hours if you try phoning them!

It changes for me all the time - I think I had three in one year once.
It depends on things like how much you earn and what benefits you get from your employer like health insurance etc.
