HelloWhere a form P45 is not given to the new employer, you will be asked for it. Every effort will be made to obtain a P45 from the new employee by the employer. If you do not this can mean that the new employer uses an emergency code. These are temporary codes, and could mean that you will pay too much tax. You are required to give the P45 to the new employer for proper tax code to apply.
