Have posted this on 'Prospective student teachers' for those working before pgce (see thread for details of forms etc) but thought I'd post it here too as it applies to you NQTs too! Told an NQT collegue about this and she's apparently getting around £600 back! Basically tax years run april to april and your taxed as though you've worked 12 months but really have only worked 8 months (sept to april.) assuming your nqt job is your first paid role etc. (Or in my pre pgce case, April to august) Anyway, direct.gov, search for P50. Definately worth a look for a wee two fingered salute to the tax man!
