Basically the script is, the mother phoned the docs for some results/info on my (just turned) 17yr old brother. They said they couldn't release info to her, only to him. She kicked off & they said he needs to call
Gets onto the topic of work & she tells them he's 8am - 7pm Monday-Saturday. They start to get funny spouting that it's illegal.
My dad kicks off at my mother for volunteering too much info & they get onto the topic of taxes. My mother tells him he doesn't pay tax & my dad says that's ball-ox.
After a bit of google searching, i'm asking here, because i just keep getting those irritating Yahoo Q+A sessions where people pass info like they know what they're talking about, when clearly they don't.
He's an apprentice. He goes to college on a MOnday & then he works Tues-Sat. They only have to pay him something like £90.01 or £95.01 or whatever it is, but he's actually coming out with about £180 per week. He pays National Insurance which is around £10/week at a guess.
But no deductions are under PAYE.
My dad reckons he's going to get majorly funked later on when he does come to pay tax & that it should get sorted out now.
So, should he be paying, or not? If so, why isn't it auto taken out of his wage?
