What is a P46?

The P46 has now been superceded by a starter checklist form. If you donít have a P45 because, for example, youíre starting your first job or taking on a second job without giving up your other one, your new employer may give you a form to complete. It contains important information that affects the amount of tax youíll pay, such as whether:

  • this is your first job 
  • you've been claiming Jobseeker's Allowance or Employment and Support Allowance
  • you've got another job
  • you're paying off a student loan...
  • Also a record of your personal details

Some employers may not give you a starter checklist to complete, but will ask you for the relevant information to allocate a tax code and work out the tax due on your first pay day. HMRC will process the starter checklist or the relevant information passed on from your employer. Itís important that you complete the starter checklist or provide the relevant information your employer has asked you for as soon as possible before your first pay day, so your employer knows what tax code to use.
