    Hi guys, I'm an italian student who lives and studies in Rome.
    I'm gonna be working in the UK for the summer, and I've been asked to complete a p46 form. I don't know if I should tick box D which says:

    "If you left a course of Higher Education before last
    6 April and received your first Student Loan
    instalment on or after 1 September 1998 and
    you have not fully repaid your Student Loan, enter 'X'
    in box D. (If you are required to repay your
    Student Loan through your bank or building
    society account do not enter an 'X' in box D.)"

    I'm confused? I don't receive student loans and surely this only applies for the UK university system?

    Just put N/A maybe?

    To be honest, it might just be worth calling HMRC and asking them what you should do. Messing up tax forms could cause problems later down the line, and it's really not worth the hassle. There might even be a different form for you to fill in which takes account of your circumstances. HMRC certainly looovveee forms... :|

    Good luck
