Tax and National Insurance if you work for an employer

If you work for an employer during term-time, any Income Tax and National Insurance due will be deducted from your wages before you receive them. This is known as Pay As You Earn (PAYE). Everybody can earn a certain amount before they start paying Income Tax – this is called the personal allowance.

For every tax year you begin making National Insurance contributions when you earn above a certain amount, this is called the earnings threshold.
