Tax code and wages
Check your tax code
Your tax code is shown on your wage slip, check if this is correct on the HMRC website. If it is incorrect you could be paying too much tax. You will need to create a Government Gateway account to do this but you can also query your tax code if you believe it is incorrect once you have set it up.
Check if you can pay less tax or claim tax relief
If you are married, in a civil partnership or registered blind you may be able to reduce the tax you pay by increasing your personal allowance (the amount you are allowed to earn before being taxed).
Check your wages are correct
Living in Scotland you are entitled to the national minimum wage. Gov.uk provide a free checker tool so you can check you are receiving this.
If your employer is not paying you the national minimum wage call us for advice.
