    I've just received my first maternity pay, on my payslip it says

    SMP £128.73
    Then
    Tax deducted -89.40
    Then
    Net pay £218.13

    Is that really all I get?!?! Is that wrong?

    I'm only meant to be on statuary, that can't be right?!?

    Stat pay is just over £128 per week - I am on Maternity Allowance and it is the same - didn't think you should be getting taxed though?

    Yeah, that is what you should be getting per week. Your monthly payslip should say 4 x that much!

    that tax has actually been credited, not deducted. hmrc must have overtaxed you a bit previously.

    The tax is a rebate, your obviously in credit with tax, but the smp should be four weeks worth. Xxx

    No you shouldn't be taxed, I'd check it out and have a moan cos it should show 4 weeks worth, unless, its your first week, and they are paying it at end of month iykwim, then end of march youlll get 4 weeks?

    Yes you get taxed on SMP, but often they have taxed you previously thinking you will be earnig that much every month, which obviously you aren't earnig as much now. So you may find you get some tax back. But as a rule all SMP earnings are taxed

    So I've been paid for one week, but when I'm paid for a month that'll be taxed, even tho it's a pittance?

    I'm pretty sure you'll be taxed as you'd have used up your tax free allowance when you worked the beginning of the tax year! X
