    I received a weeks notice, beginning of September, which I did not need to work. I received a letter stating that at the end of September , the final settlement would be transferred. I do not know how much that would be,
    because of the weeks notice, holidays taken and commission due are unclear.
    However, today I received from the company that transfers the wages, a payslip for the whole month of September. There is no mention of above factors and looks like a regular monthly payslip. I have not received the money on my account yet. I don't know how much I should have received and what to do best. We did not part on good terms. Should I wait and see and sit back and wait. Do I spend it, and would I have to pay it back? I have not received my p45 my mail either.

    If you have been overpaid they will (if they realise) ask for it back and you're legally obliged to do so. But if in doubt call up HR to ask if you didn't part on good terms with your immediate boss?
