  • Need for Reporting on Saving Interest when Employed

    Hi, I'm a resident in the UK and have a PSA of 500 pounds per year depending on my income band. I'll probably go over my allowance in this tax year with the savings account (in a well-known UK bank) interests I'll get. I am full-time employed (not self-employed) and did not need to complete a tax return before for any reason. Depending on what I've read on gov.uk and several other websites, I understand that my bank will tell HMRC the amount of saving interest I've earned in the current tax year and HMRC will update my tax code accordingly. From this, I understand that, I don't need to fill any form or something and I don't need to tell HMRC about this because it'll be already accounted for. Is this right? Help appreciated, Thanks!
