    I am currently on the 1060L tax free £10,600 basic tax code.

    The job I currently do is part time so I have never had to pay tax or national insurance if I start a full
    time job say earning £16k a year will I still be entitled to be on the basic personal allowance 1060L or will the tax code change?

    thanks

    If you do both jobs you need to contact HMRC and tell them so they can adjust the codes. Usually the personal allowance comes of your largest income, but you can opt to have it split over them both. The amount of tax you pay will be the same though so it doesn't really matter how it is split, as long as you're getting the full allowance.

    I agree.
    But shouldnt the tax code be 1100L, not 1060L this tax year.
