A colleague has been on a 3 year secondment in the UK, which finishes on 15th April. He will be paid by the company until then and issued with a p45. He is immediately returning to India to take up a new employment with a different company. For tax year 2015-16, will he receive a full year SPA in the UK?
Actually he has quite a large bonus payment due. Would he automatically be refunded the April 15 PAYE or would he need to do a tax return for 15-16?
Here is a nugget from the Low Income Tax Reforms Group Notes to students:
'But you should be entitled to a full year’s personal allowance.' The reason is because the tax tables will only allocate 1/12 of a personal allowance in April.
Here is the Gov UK information on refunds:
'HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) will usually send repayments within 5 weeks, but it may take longer in some cases.
You should wait 5 weeks after making an online claim and 6 weeks after making a postal claim before contacting HMRC about the payment.'
P85 forms may be filed on line.
