Tax Code Helpline

If you need to find out your tax code, you can do so online, or by calling the above number. This is the Tax Code Helpline, where someone will be able to help you further. Tax Codes usually start with a number and end in a letter, and for most people who are in a full-time job, or who are claiming a pension, the tax code is 1150L. Tax Codes are usually figured out by the HMRC by calculating your personal allowance.

Emergency Tax Codes Helpline

Emergency tax codes in the UK usually end with W1 or M1. If your tax code starts with K, you are paying tax that is owed from previous months. To find out more about emergency tax, call the number and someone from the Emergency Tax Codes team will be able to assist you further.

Updated Tax Code Services

If you change your job, you may be placed on emergency tax. HMRC will automatically update your tax code when you have given your employer the full details of your previous job, or any previous pension schemes that you may be a part of. Tax Codes will also automatically be updated if you receive a pay rise or if you claim marriage allowance.

If your Tax Code has been updated, you will receive a letter from the HMRC in order to tell you that your Tax Code has changed. If you would like to query this, or you would like to discuss your tax code with a member of the team, you can call the Updated Tax Code Services Helpline. This number can also be used if you have had a change in circumstances.


In order to make a complaint about your Tax Code, your Tax Bracket or more, call the number and you will be connected to a member of the HMRC Complaints team, who can help you further. You can also use this number to complain about the way you have been treated by the HMRC Stamp Duty staff.
