  • Ex-employer not updating previous year PAYE records

    Hello, I used to work for this employer from June 2021 to March 2022. I joined another company from April 2022. This year (2024-25) my tax code was changed due to underpayment from financial year 2022-23. Upon checking my employment history, I found out the ex employer did not remove me from their payroll system until October 2023. Now HMRC thinks I had two jobs and owe them tax but I am only working for my current employer since April 2022. I tried explaining this to my ex-employer and they initially admitted their mistake and agreed to update their records but they have not done so and are now unreachable. I also contacted HMRC but they said my ex-employer will need to send them EYU and can’t help. I have no way to reach out to my ex-employer. Please help as I am overpaying tax and cannot afford to take a cut from my current salary. Thanks.
