He was exempt from tax for the two previous tax years due to SED. He was employed when he worked on the ships (via a company called MSOL Services Limited, based in Jersey) He would invoice them and then they would invoice the company (PVI Limited)
Unfortunately he doesn't qualify for SED as he was not out of the country for long enough.
He is now employed in the UK and pays tax via PAYE, will that mean he doesn't need to make any payments on account?
Finally, will he be eligible for a tax refund for the 12/13 tax year, seeing as he only worked half of it and was on a NT tax code, therefore didn't receive any form of allowance?
Many thanks for this. I can't seem to see where his personal allowance has been taken in to account. Also I can't see how to change the payment on account sum to zero... are you able to point me in the right direction?
the online version...
That's great, thank you.
One final question. Is there any way that this can be paid in instalments? Or does the entire amount have to be paid by the 31st January?
That's a great help - thank you. Sorry, just one last question. Will he be eligible for a rebate at all? He was he was out of work until October of this year?
He wont be eligible for a rebate for 2012/13 as he has yet to pay his tax for that year.For 2013/14, assuming he has been on a 810L tax code since he started his new job, he would have been paying less tax than he otherwise might have as his personal allowances are playing catch up so hopfully he will be have paid the right amount up to now. You can check the position after 5 April 2014.
He has actually been on (and is still on) an emergency tax code. I guess he needs to talk to his employer / tax office?
Thank you, you have been most helpful.
