Payroll Starter Checklist


Before you pay your new starter to follow these steps.

  1. Get employee information to work out their tax code – if you don’t have their P45, use HMRC’s ‘starter checklist’ (which replaced the P46).
  2. Find out if they need to repay a student loan.
  3. Send these details to us

This Starter Checklist can be used to gather information about your new employee. You can use this information to help fill in your first Full Payment Submission (FPS) for this employee. You need to keep the information recorded on the Starter Checklist record for the current and previous three tax years. Do not send this form to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
