HMRC have updated my tax code to 1150LX which the system says is not a valid tax code?

My tax code has change from 1150L to 1150LX, however the system says thats an invalid Tax code! Apparently the 'X' mean the following on the HMRC Website- Your tax is based only on what you are paid in the current pay period, not the whole year. This may also be shown as a W1/ M1 or week1/month 1 on your pension or wage slip.

Can you tell me how I should apply this tax code change in Quickbooks online.




Hi a.mcgahern,

Our system does not currently accept emergency codes like 1150LX and 1050X for payroll. You can only apply 1150L tax code in QuickBooks Online. If you want this feature to be available, you can send feedback to our engineering department.

To send feedback, you can click the Gear icon (Cogwheel), then click Feedback.

You may check UK emergency tax code at this link: GOV UK (Website)

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
