P60. How does a person's P60 get sent each year?

Sending a P602:44

"P60. How does a person's P60 get sent each year?"

The P60 shows how much tax a person's paid during the tax year. It's automatically emailed when their last paystub is filed for the end of the tax year.

To pay a person's last paystub in a tax year and send their P60:

  1. First, during the month of March, select the person's pay batch on: "Menu", then "Pay batches"
  2. Now, on the "To-do" tab, look for: "Payday ... P60s are sent"
  3. That payday is the last paystub to be filed before the end of the tax year, ending on April the 5th.
  4. Next, tap the payday, so it slides out on the right.
  5. Normally you'd pay everyone. But for now, you can uncheck everyone, and then check the people you're ready to pay.
  6. Then tap File now, and then: Yes ... file it
  7. It usually takes 15 to 20 seconds for HMRC to finish processing the paystubs and send back confirmation that it's been received.
  8. Also, because it's the last paystub before the end of the tax year, each person's P60 is also being emailed.
  9. The emailing happens automatically, in the background. The P60s are emailed to each person's personal email as a PDF attachment.
  10. Once it's been filed successfully, and the P60s are emailed, you'll see a green check beside the people that you've paid.
  11. On most paydays, each person normally only gets one email which contains their paystub PDF.
  12. On the P60 payday, however, each person also gets their P60, as a PDF, which is sent in a second email.
  13. Scroll to the bottom of the email to see the P60 attached as a PDF, and tap it to open it.
  14. The P60 includes the person's total pay for the year.
  15. And finally, it also includes the person's total tax deducted for the year.

Keep in mind that:

  • If a person hasn't entered a personal email, their P60 is sent to their work email instead.
  • Also, check that your P60 is stored somewhere safe.
  • You could later need your P60 to do your tax return, claim tax credits, or claim Universal Credit.
