An individual must receive the P45 form within four weeks of leaving the job. The form is generally delivered with the final paycheck. If the former employee does not receive a P45 before this deadline expires, it may be necessary to contact the employer.
The P45 form is a U.K. tax form that lists pay and deductions during a given tax period. This form is necessary for completing year-end taxes. Employers are responsible for ensuring that all current and former employees receive these forms. If an employee does not receive the P45, it may become necessary to file a complaint with Workplace Relations Customer Services.
