    The agency does have the correct tax code (though there is the W1 at the end, for the emergency one).

    They told me I was on the higher band because I received 4 weeks of salary as one payment. It was the first payment I receive as a new contractor so maybe they started the payroll for that first payment that's why they counted this amount as being my weekly one.

    I look forward to seeing it corrected on the next payroll rather than having me to do extra calculation for the self-assessment...

    Thanks.
    It will be fixed in March as it always is when the last payment for the year is done.

      Thanks eek. I will keep an eye on it and trust it will eventually be fixed.

        it will improve with each subsequent pay packet. As each one comes through it gets closer to year end and the correct number.
        I would ask them why you have the emergency code though. If you've provided a P45 you should be on a normal tax code.

          IF he's provided a P45 and it's his only job, then unless there's a pertinent fact or two missing, emergency tax codes should be temporary.
          I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.
