Since 6 April 2012 the age related personal allowances have been frozen with a view to phase these out, now the basic personal allowance will increase to £11,000 from 6th April 2016 this brings the basic personal allowance above the maximum personal age allowance. Who will this effect? Anyone who was born before 6th April 1938.
So from April 2016 the tax suffix Y will be abolished. Anyone previously on tax suffix Y should receive a coding notification from HMRC to change them to suffix L or T. Don’t be too concerned if you do not receive notification in time for your April paydate, these coding’s can still be used until HMRC supply the revised coding.
