So I resinged from my job due to mental health issues caused by working 12 hour shifts and will be starting a new job in a couple weeks.
My Final pay was due on Friday which was fine but I have no P45.
I’ve got time 2 weeks + the week in hand before my new job would need to pay me but i’d rather not get emergency taxed.
P46 is no longer in use and you would need to complete the New Starter Checklist which has replaced it Starter checklist for PAYE - GOV.UK Since we moved across to RTI a number of years back it’s much quicker to get you onto the correct code
RTI did away with a lot of the paper forms as employers tend to get electronic P2 Coding Notices via their payroll software or to their payroll bureau if outsourced. Codes are then updated into the FPS submissions that they make to HMRC when staff are paid. Occasionally it doesn’t work as it should and the new starter checklist is required if a BR code is applied
I will say that I was emergency taxed for like 3 months and I got my p45 over to the new employer after I fished it out from my filing and they were able to update my details and basically on my most recent pay cheque I actually got given money back. So don’t worry. It’s annoying to begin with but once you get the p45 over to them they’ll sort it.
