Hello, I have started a new job, which is zero hours and thus a bit unpredictable. I've selected Option B on the Starter Checklist. However, I may soon be starting a second job with a fixed annual salary. My concern is that, if successful, I would then be forced to pick Option C on the Starter Checklist simply because I had already started another job. The problem with that would be that the high-paying job would be fully taxed on a BR code, and my 12570 allowance would be wasted on the zero hours job. I'd like for it to be the opposite way around. As the first pay for both jobs would likely be at the end of the same month, I'm wondering - can anything be done to avoid such a situation in advance or can HMRC only switch/reassign tax codes post-payslip? Many thanks

We would only be able to change your tax codes after the first payslip, as that is
when the employer would send the details through to us.

Thank you
