The P9X form is used to notify employers of tax codes to use for employees. The latest version of the form has just been published and shows the tax codes to use from 6 April 2022. The forms states that the basic personal allowance for the tax year starting 6 April 2022 will, as expected, be £12,570 (£12,570 2021-22) and this means that the tax code for emergency use will remain at 1257L.

The basic rate limit will be £37,700 (£37,700 2021-22) except for those defined as Scottish taxpayers who have a lower basic rate limit as well as an intermediate rate. The new form P9X is available online on GOV.UK to download or print.

The P9X (2022) form also includes information to help employers in the new tax year. The document reminds employers that have new employees starting work between 6 April and 24 May 2022, and who provide you with a P45, to follow the instructions at www.gov.uk/new-employee
