HMRC issues incorrect PAYE coding notices PDF Print E-mail

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) started issuing PAYE coding notices for 2010/11 a few weeks ago but some of the codes are incorrect and may result in more tax being deducted from your pay or pension than is necessary.


Situations where an incorrect code may have been issued are where:

  • a previous employment stopped some time ago but our system has not picked this up and a Coding Notice has been sent for that employment
  • two notices have been sent for the same employment
  • the code BR (basic tax) or DO (higher rate tax) has been given for an employment or pension for the first time

Following this blunder, HMRC has issued an apology and the following statement “If you are concerned about your tax code and you think it is wrong, particularly if it falls into one of these three categories, then you should check it using the guidance included with the Coding Notice and our website. If you cannot resolve your query using this they say you should contact them on 0845 3000 627 so they can make sure you have the right tax code applied in time for the start of the new tax year on 6 April 2010.”


The HM Revenue & Customs helpline is overwhelmed and many callers who have tried to call the helpline have been unable to get through.
