So a good majority of last year I worked in two workplaces. My main job and my part time job. During my employment in my part time job I remember that I had re-sign my contract and we were under new management as the owner had sold the business. But the name was pretty much the same. I left in November last year, and I was hoping to see my main and only job tax stop being so high. And it still continued. People are working less than me and getting more in their wage at my main job.
I was still getting emails about my wage slip at my part time job. I kept replying back saying I don’t work here take me off the payroll records. But every week an email saying here's your payslip with nothing paid to me. I figured that's why I was getting taxed high still because I was still there. So I went there and they showed me a p45 they had generated. Assuming it was correct I took it and just thought the payroll clerk was just sending them out by mistake.
I've checked my payslip today and I'm still getting taxed high, and someone suggested I go to the government website and check my income tax code. And I was shocked to see they still have me as working at the old part time workplace.
The baffling thing is that below there is a record I worked at the same company and left in July, and then I realised it was when it was under the old management. The p45 is dated for July. And they still have me on their current payroll!
I rang them up and told them to delete me and inform hmrc that I no longer work there from November 2019 and they keep saying we gave you a p45 that's proof we have said you're not working here, you need to speak to hmrc. While I'm saying that its because they terminated my contract with the old company not the new. But they say its out of their hands. I've tried updating to hmrc but they said I can't report it until after the 28th march because they are waiting for them to contact hmrc because I received a payslip in February 2020. I worked out I was taxed a total of £1500+ extra and I need that money back.
What do I do.
