Not paying tax new job

Postby hazard157 » Mon Nov 27, 2023 10:42 pm

Hi all,

from February 2023 to end of September 2023 I was on a salary that works out at just over £45k a year. It was a contract job. Paid weekly.


For around 5 or 6 weeks after the contract job I did not work I was looking for a job. I started a new job in November. The salary of this role is just under £29k a year and also pays weekly.

I have received 2 payslips so far have not paid any tax on it but I have earnt more than my gross salary currently around £552 a week


1st week pay (£552 a week before tax) received £664
2nd week pay (£552 a week before tax) received £812

My next payslip is due this week in the coming days for the 3rd week.

Why am I getting way more than my gross salary and not paying any deductions at all? My tax code is 1263L. Has anyone else experienced this after getting a significantly lower paid job? How long will this go on for? And will I owe any tax in the future?

Thanks.

Your tax code will be playing catch up given the gap in employment as come the start of your new employment you will only have benefited from half the PA.
