Hi all! I'm an NQT having started in September. I have noticed that income tax has not been deducted so far. This month I will have earned roughly £10,000 since I started so that means next month I will have been paid above the personal allowance of £10,600. Have I mistakenly not being paying income tax or is this usual and I will start paying tax next month once I am over the personal allowance? If I do start paying tax next month, will I be expected to pay the 20% income tax of my full yearly salary minus £10,600 personal allowance in the remaining 7 months of the year? That would mean £384 a month income tax which seems awfully high! This would virtually cripple me financially and seems like an odd way of doing things! I hope this makes sense as it is really confusing me!
