I know I got a rebate in my wages after paying emergancy tax and then the tax office having me on the wrong code, and that was paid back in my wages, but I haven't heard about this....

i hadn`t heard nothing until someone came in saying their husband had money in his wages and we all checked our wage slips and we had to and some had paid no tax and got a smaller amount back

The personal allowance has increased by £600 this month (though applies to the whole of the year, and in particular retrospectively since April). For people who have PAYE deducted form their salary, this means that they will have 6 months worth of the extra tax-free amount in their September salary.

The changes mean that employees paid on a monthly basis receive around £60 extra in September followed by an additional £10 a month until the end of the tax year.

For employees paid weekly there is an increase of around £53 in their pay for the week starting 7 September, followed by an extra £2.30 each week for the remainder of the tax year.

For employees who have paid less than £60 tax by the end of August this year, the September increase in pay matches the tax they had paid so far.

As your dp is now self-employed, he presumably doesn't have PAYE deducted, so he won't receive the benefit in the increased personal allowance until he does make his tax payment(s) for the year.

a collegue told me about this the other day, but i'm a bit confused by it.

Not going to be alot though. Only something like £10 a month for the next 6 months. Still every bit counts smile

Don't know if it's the same for everyone though, and I may have understood her and got it completly wrong....

Everyones tax code is changing by 60 so most people are on 543L now will go to 603L this will mean in the first pay packet you get you will get and extra amout (£60 if you are monthly paid) and then it is about £10 pm from then on
