Tax Myth FAQ's
Get answers from our experts on all things tax!
There’s always misleading information out there about what you should do when paying tax, submitting timesheets and changing tax codes, so we decided to create a myth FAQ page.
This page is dedicated to answering the most common queries around what you should where tax is concerned. If there isn’t a question on here you want answering, don’t worry, you can request a call back and someone will be in touch to discuss your questions.
Q – Should I spread out my timesheets to reduce paying as much tax?
A – Our tax system uses the week ending date of the timesheet for tax purposes, not the week processed. So, if you hold back timesheets, our system will use the week-ending date of the timesheet for your tax – you will pay the sam tax regardless.
Q – What type of tax codes are there and how do they affect me?
A – You can be on a cumulative or non-cumulative tax code. Non-cumulative codes can be identifies as having an M1 or X next to your tax code. Your earning would always be taxed as if you are earning within the first month of the tax year. On a cumulative code, all overpayments and underpayments of tax will be rectified in ‘real time’ via the payroll.
Q – Where does my tax code come from?
A – Your tax code is given to us as an instruction from HMRC.
Q – Can Bluestones Medical change my tax code?
A – We cannot change a candidates’ tax code without written confirmation of the correct code from HMRC.
