Tax and National Insurance (NI)
Tax and National Insurance are statutory obligations for most people who are taking up employment, even if only on a Part Time basis.
Most people have a basic personal allowance of £10,000. This means that you only pay tax on earnings above this figure in the current tax year.
If you have paid tax in a year in which you did not exceed your personal allowance you may be entitled to a tax refund.
For further details about how to if you are entitled to a tax refund please see - www.hmrc.gov.uk/students
It is important to keep P45s and P60s to back up your claim.
Contact your local Tax Office for further information. www.hmrc.gov.uk/menus/contactus.shtml
If you only work during the vacation period, ask your employer if you can fill out a P38(S) form. You should then be paid without tax being deducted.
