    Following the recent force wide email concerning tax codes and due to the overwhelming receipt of several hundred emails and phone calls, Caroline Harris apologises that she is unable to respond on an individual basis, but would like to offer the following guidance and information:


    For your information the correct tax codes shown on month 12 ie. March 2018 payslip should be 1189L.

    Broken down as follows:

    Personal tax allowance        £11,500

    Professional subs                £259 (membership of police fed)

    Flat rate expenses               £140


    New tax year ie. 6th April 2018 which will be month 1 payslip should be 1224L.  

    Personal tax allowance        £11,850

    Professional subs                £259 (membership of Police Federation)

    Please note tax codes may appear differently to the above due to personal circumstances.
