This site has no connection with HM Revenue & Customs so I cannot look at your tax code to see why the change has occurred, However, if you wish me to, I may be able to help you work out why there has been a code change if you give me a little more information. If you would like that, let me know and I will ask you some questions about your circumstances.
I deal with tax code questions nearly every day on this site so I can assure you I know what I'm talking about.
The reason I asked you the question I did is that some people who come to this site think we are the tax office and they give their NI number which is not a good idea to do on a website in any event. When they find out we are not the tax office they don't want to go any further so I was just trying to save your time and mine. Whoever deals with this question will have to ask for more information but I am going to let somebody else do that and opt out myself as I only ever ask necessary questions so that I can give an accurate answer.
