I'd be very grateful if someone could please help me with my situation. Currently, I am a university student and my previous paid work includes:
Leaving date: 03/2005
Pay to date: £1000 approx
Tax to date: 0

Now recently, I did some temp work for a couple of days (just received my P45):
Leaving date: 09/2008
Pay to date: £90 approx
Tax to date: £16 approx

Am I correct in saying that I am entitled to this £16? If so, how would I go about getting this back?

Thanks in advance.
The work you did in 2005 has no bearing on the 2008/9 tax year, so ignore that.

You should be able to claim that tax back but it's easiest to sort out once April comes around, as you will know for sure then how much you have earnt, in relation to the personal allowance. I'm pretty sure tax claims have been covered in this thread already though. R40 form I believe. Titch89 seems to be the wise one here

The forms to claim back tax and the one for the bank to stop taxing your savings can be found on www.hmrc.gov.uk

You need to fill in an R85 form - www.hmrc.co.uk
Yes, I went for that one today with the Bank but they said a NIN number is also required. Any students from EU who already did it and could advise how to obtain NIN number as a EU student on a full time course in UK?
Probably I need the NIN also for my SLC loan records?

Hi..

I've just worked for 2 months, temp contract thing (with the Job Centre of all places!)

The first month I'm pretty sure they taxed me too much, but I'm not sure how to go about getting the money back as they haven't sent me a P45, and I've just started another job and don't want to get emergency taxed on that too. ugh

help??

edit: I'm pretty sure my tax code was BR for the first month, then it changed in the second one

I've been charged £22 in tax for the last two months - I'm 17 and only started working weekends this week. Can't be right?

It should be on your payslips.

Either 603L, 603BR X or something.

Right, im very very confused so any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've just started Uni, been working since October last year full time until August of this year during my gap year. From April to August i've been paying tax, and was still under the threshold when i left the job to come to Uni. In total i've paid £532 tax this tax year. How do i claim this back? Several people have said photocopy your P45 and send it off with covering letter to tax office, but will they just send me forms to fill in which i may as well do first, or do i have to wait until April next year? I could really do with the money so if i can get it by writing a letter now rather than waiting until April that would be great.

thanks

Wait until April, as you may work more and go over your personal allowance.

Quick question, I started working in Argos 3 weeks ago, (part time temp, sat/sun) and I received a pay slip, of which £42.60 was deducted from me, for Income Tax. I didn't pay any NI.
As it is only a christmas temp job, should I claim it back ASAP, or wait until April to do a tax return?

My contract finishes on the 24th January, but it may go on longer if they decide to take me on further.

Wait until April. You won't know what you'll earn from now until then.
