New employees can use the secure HMRC app to find out their personal tax information and pass details on to their employer – saving them time.
As tens of thousands of people start seasonal jobs over the next few weeks, they can use the HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) app to save them time finding details they need to pass on to their employers.
In the 12 months up to October 2022, HMRC received almost 3 million calls from people asking for information that is now readily available on the app, with more than 340,000 using it to access employment and income information since July 2022.
New functions and capabilities mean that customers can access their income and employment history, salary information, National Insurance number or tax code via the app, whenever they need it.
The information can be downloaded and printed – so there is no need to call HMRC to ask for it to be sent in the post. This means that using the app rather than calling the helpline makes the process much quicker.
