UK Tax

The UK Tax system is designed to ensure that your tax is always correct. It also ensures that the vast majority of employees don’t need to submit a tax return at the end of the tax year. The system works so well that most UK employees don’t have to deal with it at all; their employer calculates their tax and pays it over to HMRC, so other than occasionally checking their payslips and filing their P60 away once a year, they don’t have to do anything.
