Getting old P60s and P45

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am a USC that worked in the UK for 3 years. I didn't realize i was meant to be filing taxes while I was over there so now I am behind on my US taxes and I have to catch up.

In order to do this I believe I need my p60s for the 2011/2012 tax year, the 2012/2013 tax year and the 2013/2014 tax year.

My employer from 2011-2013 has said they have it all on file and will be sending me the forms once they get a chance. However my employer from May 2013 to December 2013 have said they don't have a record of it. I read online that employers are required to keep records for three years, so they should have it. Is this true?

How can I go about getting old p60s and p45s? Everything I've read said the employers can make you a duplicate, but what if my employer says they don't have it on file?

Thanks all!

They should still have it on file but if they're not being helpful you can contact HMRC as they should have it on record. They can send you a letter showing your pay and tax information for that employer.

I work in the HR/payroll department for my company so I know how the the process works. They should most definitely have a copy of yours. It's impossible for you to get another original as once they're printed, they're printed. What we do, which I'm sure other companies do too, at the end of each tax year, once we've printed off the P60s (and P45s when an employee leaves) we copy each one and put them in their respective employee files. Then they get archived till we can chuck 'em out. So your employer from last year is talking out of their backside and just being awkward. Gail83 is right though, they can send you a letter, on their headed paper, with your pay and tax info which should be just as sufficient.

Thanks HDreams and Gail83. I was slightly pissed off that they didn't keep it on file or give me my p45 but it seems I don't need them anyway.

I've worked out my UK salary into dollars using the annual conversion rates and I'm half done with my forms for 1 of the three years I am filing for.

Anyways - thanks all for the help!
