P45. How do I find a person's P45, or prove one's been sent?

Finding a sent P452:00

"P45. How do I find a person's P45, or prove one's been sent?"

Sometimes a person who's left months ago may come back to you asking for another copy of their P45. If so, you'll need to re-download their P45.

To download a P45 of a deleted person:

  1. First, tap: "Menu", then "Deleted bin"
  2. Then tap: People
  3. And then tap the deleted person you're looking for, to open them.
  4. To see their P45, scroll down and tap: See P45
  5. Alternatively, the other way to find a person's P45 is to tap: "Tax", then "Tax forms history"
  6. Then tap the row that says: "P45 sent"
  7. To re-download a copy of the person's original P45, tap the "PDF" button.
  8. While you're waiting for it to download, to see more details about when it was sent, tap the blue "more" link.
  9. You'll also see the address that was used when the person's P45 was originally emailed.
  10. And finally, once the P45's downloaded, you can open it as a PDF, or send it on to the person who's requesting it.

Keep in mind that:

  • Even if a person's been deleted, you can always re-download their P45, even years later.
  • You don't need to undelete the person to download their P45.
  • Also, if you don't want the cover pages included in the P45 PDF download, tap the blue switch to turn it off:

  • About what to do if the person's P45 isn't listed, and may never have been sent, watch the video on: Sending a P45

And that's it! That's everything you need to know about finding a person's P45, and proving it's been sent!
