    Hi all, I have got a new job starting in September and am not sure of which tax statement to put in. I will continue working at my current school until the end of August.
    Can anyone help with which statement I should tick?

    a) This is my first job since 6th April.
    b) This is my only job, but since last 6 April I have had another job
    c) I have another job,

    I don't want to tick the wrong one and be over taxed in September. Any help would be gratefully appreciated!

    B then they will transfer your tax code to that post. If you get a P45 then they will need that forwarded. C is if you are continuing with another job at the same time.

    As said above, b) is clearly correct, assuming that you don't have another job. If your pay is similar between the two jobs, it is likely that your tax will be fairly accurate from the start, as your personal allowance will have been divided by 12 for every month. Once your P45 has been taken account of, it should be completely accurate.
