Personal Tax Account

In 2016 HMRC launched the ‘Personal Tax Account’, which enables people to be able to register to be able to access and monitor the information HMRC hold about them e.g tax code, tax credits, state pension age.

The details can be found using the following link:

Registration is easy to do – in order to do this you will need to have:

  • Recent P60 or latest payslip
  • National Insurance Number
  • Mobile phone

Part of the process will require you to confirm your National Insurance Number and answer questions with regards to details shown on either the P60 or payslip depending on what you have.  You will need your mobile phone as once you have registered and e-mail address, a PIN number will be sent to your phone which you will need to confirm in order to progress to the screens to view your details.

You will be required to have your phone with you each time you attempt to access your details as a PIN code will be sent each time you do this, which you will need to confirm as part of the log in process.

Once registered you are able to:

  • Register an e-mail address to receive notifications
  • Update your details on line
  • View all information held by HMRC about you

Please share this information with your staff as it could assist with certain queries that won’t have to be dealt with via the HMRC helpdesk.
