What is a P45?

You get a P45 from your employer when you stop working for them. It's a record of your pay and the tax that's been deducted from it so far in the tax year. It shows:

  • your tax code and PAYE (Pay As You Earn) reference number
  • your National Insurance number
  • your leaving date
  • your earnings in the tax year
  • how much tax was deducted from your earnings

A P45 has four parts - Part 1, Part 1A, Part 2 and Part 3.

Your employer sends Part 1 to HMRC and gives you the other three.

When you start a new job, or claim Jobseeker's Allowance, you give Part 2 and Part 3 to your new employer or to the Jobcentre.

You keep the remaining one - Part 1A for your own records.

Your employer should automatically give you a P45 when you stop working for them. If not, ask for it - you're entitled to it by law.
