You might be eligible for the independent earner tax credit (IETC) if you move from a benefit to a job. The IETC will start the month after your benefit stops.

You get the IETC each payday by a reduction in the amount of pay as you earn (PAYE) tax you pay.

To make sure you don't get paid too much IETC you'll need to give your employer two Tax code declaration - IR330 forms:

  • An IR330 when you start your job. Choose tax code M or M SL.
  • A new IR330 after your last pay in the month you started your job. Choose tax code ME or ME SL.
