Employee tax enquiries
HMRC have announced a new telephone number for use by employees who have queries about their tax position.
The new number replaces more than sixty old numbers which will be switched off in the near future. Employers are advised that they should update their guidance for employees, including that provided on intranets and in manuals. It’s important to ensure that employees are made aware of the new number and that any old numbers are removed.
The new number for employees to call for help with their tax enquiries is 0845 300 0627.
Employers can also use this number if they want to confirm an employee’s PAYE tax code. Employers with any other queries relating to payroll issues should continue to call HMRC’s Employer Helpline on 08457 143 143.
