We have a legal obligation to operate PAYE on the payments of your earnings when you reach the National Insurance Lower Earnings Limit (LEL).
For the tax year 2012-13 this is £156 per week, £675 per month or £8,105 per year.
Your P60 provides a statement of your earnings and statutory deduction for a each tax year. We issue this to you before 31st May each year.
You have to be in our employment on the last day of the tax year (5th April) to get a P60, but your P45 will state theses figures.
P60's can be used as proof of earnings for tax credits, benefits, etc or to help you complete a self-assessment tax return.
