I thought it was?
I remember back in a day, a bloke working as a mechanic got his paypacket every week but with no details on it regarding tax and NI etc.
He got done by the taxman and had to pay a couple of years back tax as his employer hadn’t been paying it and he had no paypackets or payslips to prove he didn’t know.Posted 4 years agocraigxxlMember
Your employer must supply you with a statement of earnings less any deductions. This can be paper or electronic and needs to be supplied to you by the time you receive your net wages. They must also supply you with an annual statement if earnings (P60) by 19th May for the prior tax year.
Winston-Dog, HMRC will normally go after the employer not the employee when taxes haven’t been deducted. The employee is effectively paid net and HMRC gross up the earnings to calculate the underpayment of tax. Bar trade used to be notoriously easy target for HMRC.Posted 4 years agoMarkLGMember
They’re also legally required to keep a record of the hours you’ve worked to comply with working time regulations.

Probably more to it than that.
I was sub contracting to an outfit a few years ago who seemed to have a bit of a problem issuing CIS slips as my proof of tax payment. Before filing my tax return I spoke to the local tax office who told me to submit my return without the slips and they would pursue the employer. Shortly afterwards I had a grovelling letter from the employer asking how much they had paid me while I was working for them!!Posted 4 years agodan1980MemberComradeD wrote:
I get my payslip online.
Just as an aside, mine have all gone online now too, and tried to use a printed off payslip as a form of ID with my bank, and with a letting agent, and neither accepted them, saying I could have easily modified them before printing them off myself, and only “officially printed” ones counted.
Seemed a load of rubbish to me.Posted 4 years agoastormattMember
I have worked for the same firm for the last 10 years and have never had any regular kind of payslips, in fact the last one i had was Oct 2010. The worst bit it is I have only 1 P60 in the last 10 years!Posted 4 years ago
I will be honest I never used to think about it as I was living at home with the folks but now as I am older I need proof of earnings etc.
Me and the other lad at work have been asking for the last 9 months that we want payslips and our P60 but keep getting bullshit excuses why he hasn’t sorted it.
We are starting to think something fishy is going on to be honest and don’t know what to do.
Sorry to hijack the thread but if anyone is is the know what we can do it would be good!
