The P60 has been replaced with the Employment Detail Summary since 2019.

Your Employment Detail Summary can be accessed through the ‘View your Employment Detail Summary (EDS) documents’ link in the ‘PAYE Services’ section of myAccount.

You can create an Employment Detail Summary PDF to view or print, if required. The document can be used as proof of income, where required, by third parties.
