do not destroy!!

tags: , ,

The  US the tax year runs from January 1st to December 31st.   The UK Tax, fiscal,  year runs from April 6th to April 5th based on 18th Century ‘quarter days’ when servants were traditionally hired and  ‘rent’ was gathered from the predominantly non-home-owning population and,   of course, the introduction of Tax to support  the Napoleonic wars.   Those darned French.   The UK corporate financial year runs from April 1st  to March 31st,   something to do with not loosing money when the Gregorian calendar was introduced.

I think of my P60,   provided by my employer as being like my US W2.

Do not destroy

The P60 helpfully announces this instruction  in bold type on its authority-imbued graduated pinkness.

    Do not confuse with your P45 or Tax self assessment paperwork. Mind numbingly confusing! Deep joy!
