How to Get a Copy P60

August 4, 2023

If looking to get a copy P60 you should always start with your employer. If you only need the most recent document it should be very easy. But if you need it quickly, require printed forms, or copies from previous years, that’s where our service shines.

We stock P60 stationery in a variety of formats for the past ten years. Our software and previous annual pay tables create a copy P60 document for the period you need.

Our application is used by payroll departments and individual users alike to quickly resolve pay problems. Use your own data or let our system calculate from gross or net pay. We email PDF copies and send printed forms by Royal Mail.

A Copy P60 for 2023

Get a Copy P60 from Employer

Computerised payroll makes it simple for employers to print or email a copy. They should be willing to help, so don’t be afraid to ask. If the company runs online payroll, copies will be available for download. The last P60 should be straightforward. Going back to older pay years more difficult if data has been archived.

We put together a sample email you could use if unsure of how to make the approach.

Subject: Request for P60 Document
Dear [Employer's Name],
I hope this email finds you well. I am writing to request a copy of my P60 document for the previous tax year. As I am in the process of completing my personal finances, I realised that I am unable to locate my P60 document, and would greatly appreciate it if you could provide me with a copy of it.

If there are any forms or procedures that need to be completed in order to obtain a copy of the document, please let me know and I will be happy to comply.

Thank you for your time and assistance. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards,

[Your Name]

Correct P60 Stationery

Employers are also unlikely to have old stationery so a basic printout is a likely outcome. The pay forms are pre-printed with a year end date and need to be on the correct copy. We’re happy to provide old forms to your company if they need help. If they're struggling to produce your documents we are happy to work with them to get you the items you need.

HMRC can Help with Pay Information

If you can’t get what you need from the company HMRC can also provide a service (sort of). They won’t produce a copy P60 but will send you details of your earnings and deductions. It will be on headed paper from the revenue and should be fine as proof of earnings / employment. It can take up to a few weeks to arrive unfortunately. You can also access personal pay information via the Government Gateway. Knowing your earnings for any given pay year is the key information and with that you can then get a copy P60 online.

How do I get P60 from previous employer?

Even if you no longer work for the company they should still help. Call or send a polite email asking for a copy. Tell them HMRC suggested you get in touch (which they do on the .gov website).

Do you have my P60 details?

No, we can calculate the P60 from the information you enter but we can’t verify with your employer or tax office. The data is private but you can get the information from them which we can use to calculate.

Can I view my P60 online?

If your company runs e-payroll you should have a secure login to view and download pay documents. You can’t view your P60 online at the government website. You can create a copy P60 online here and view it as a PDF file.

Should I report a lost P60?

It is important to keep safe but unlikely to be of any use to anyone else. A P60 is often used as proof of earnings but never on its own. They would need other identity documents too. Such as a passport. Driving licence. Utility bill. Bank card, etc. In isolation the P60 is of little value. It contains your address so if found you can get it back.

Do I need printed forms?

In recent years the rules have relaxed. A black and white printout from the payroll system is acceptable. And lots of companies do that.
