Cost of Living Payment The Government has announced a Cost of Living Payment, which will be paid from 1 August 2022. You do not need to apply for this payment. If you are eligible, we’ll pay it into your bank account. Find out more

When you start your new job you'll need to:

  • have an IRD number
  • know your tax code.

Your tax code is what decides how much tax is deducted from your income. The tax code that you use depends on how many sources of income you have, and whether you have a student loan.

It's important that you use the right tax code or you'll pay too little or too much tax. This could mean you end up with a tax bill at the end of the year.

As an employee you'll complete a Tax code declaration - IR330 for your employer. This tells them what deductions to make from your pay, including any student loan.
