    I received two coding notices. One for my latest employment and the other for my previous employment (which was a zero hour job). I received both soon after getting a new job.

    I was just wondering if I should contact HMRC and tell them about my circumstance or contact my previous employer instead?

    Comments will be appreciated. Thanks.

    Are you sure they are both for this tax year?

    They both read "Your tax code for the year from 6 April 2014 to 5 April 2015 is (tax code)."

    They're both for last year then. We're currently in tax year 6 April 2015 - 5 April 2016.

    You should just have one tax code for your employment this year. You'll be able to check what it is on any payslips issued this tax year.

    They sent me two coding notices because they thought I was still working for my last employer - as well as working for my new employer. This is the first time I have been given a tax code for my last employment (which I no longer work at).

    I'm unsure who's responsibility is it to update details.

    If you're concerned about it, you can call HMRC, but both those codes are for last year, so are not relevant right now.

    They can be very slow though, which could be why you've only recently received this, but unless you have two coding notices right now you don't need to worry.
