Frequently Asked Questions

Your payroll/personnel number is on your payslip. Alternatively you can contact hr_helpdesk@aston.ac.uk
If you have more than one employer, your tax code can only be against one employer. You will pay basic rate tax against your other employment. 


If your job at Aston is your only employment and are being taxed at basic rate, then we have not received either a P45 from your previous employer or a HMRC New Starter checklist to confirm your employment status.

Speak to your line manager first of all. If the unpaid leave is agreed they will contact your HR Business Partner who will write to you to confirm, and instruct Payroll to deduct the relevant amount from your salary.
If this is your first employment in the UK, or you have lost your National Insurance Number, you will need to apply for one through the HMRC website
