5 months and still no P45

I left my job in October. I had only been there about 6 months, but due to my boss's erratic and unreasonable behaviour I packed it in. She owns the business and so there was no-one higher up to ask for help or support. Wage slips were few and far between, so I am missing most of them from the time I was there. I am also still waiting for my P45 and last pay slip. She is very unapproachable and vicious so I don't want to approach her to chase them up. I am also worried that she didn't pay all of my Tax and NI (re the lack of wage slips) and that I could be liable to pay them again. I would be grateful for any advice. TIA.

Don't worry you won't be liable she will

Your best bet would be to contact HMRC. Since last April employers have to report tax & NI every time someone is payed via online software & there are penalties for not doing so.

My parents company were recently contacted by HMRC as an employee had contacted them about his tax code & they told him he wasn't on the system. It turned out to be a simple spelling error (company name spelt wrong) but it shows they are on the ball.

Thanks for the quick reply Pictures. That's a relief to hear. Her whole attitude was a bit dodgy,so I don't want to lose out financially. D'you think I should text her first, even though she still scares me, or just go straight to HMRC and let them sort out my P4?

I wouldn't text. I'd put a formal request in writing.
