Check your tax before Christmas and make sure you are left with more

The income limit on your tax card may be exceeded at the end of the year. The withholding rate on the daily allowance will then increase and the amount of the allowance you have left will decrease. This can be a nasty surprise as Christmas approaches. 

It's worth checking the tax rate before the end of the year to make sure you'll have more in your pocket. You can also plan ahead for next year.
