Tax Arrangements for NHS Staff and those returning to the NHS

27/04/2020 10:38:21


Many NHS staff will be experiencing changes in their employment, including those taking on additional shifts or returning to the NHS, as well as individuals volunteering to support the health service.


For those NHS staff choosing to take on additional work to help with the response to the COVID-19 outbreak, HMRC has been working with tax agents and employers, who organise tax arrangements on behalf of employees, about ensuring they put people on to the correct tax code. You can find out here how to check if you’re on the right tax code.


HMRC has also published new guidance on how staff returning to work for NHS trusts and local authorities will be taxed, and guidance for local authorities and NHS trusts supervising unpaid volunteers.


We are aware of an unfortunate increase in tax avoidance schemes and scams being targeted at NHS staff. You can find out more about these avoidance schemes here.
