What is a P60?

Definition of a P60

A P60 is a form that shows how much taxable salary the employee was paid in the tax year and how much tax was deducted from their wages.

An employer must give a P60 to each of their employees at the end of the tax year.

If the employee has to file a Tax Return, they will include this information in a set of Employment pages on the Tax Return.

Employees who have left during the tax year will not receive a P60 from their employer, as the same information will be on their P45.
