My hubby started a new job last week, but as his previous employer has his P45 he is paying emergency tax at the mo. He will be getting paid weekly by cash whilst on the probationary period. Alot of people have said that he will get stung heavily for tax (although he will get it back once he is in receipt of his P45) and I'm wondering if anyone knows much about this? Like roughly how much tax he will be paying over the normal amount, and how quickly he will get it back? Have done a search on google but found the info abit complicated tbh! Finding it hard to account for bills etc at the mo cos of the change in pay date and everything without the added confusion of emergency tax!
