Hi, I'm always wonder how the incone taxation system works in UK!!!

If someone works on one job (casual hours) less than 30hrs/W which differs from week to week: 23, 25 hrs .... Something like that!
This guy tax code is 1060L ( = £10600 annual tax free allowance)

If he works in another job (casual hours as well) just to complete his weekly limit of hours which is 30hrs/week with same rate (min wage) . Example:
17 hrs from 1st job + 13hrs from the 2nd job = total 30 hrs per week

would the HMRC consider the second job as a new category of tax calculation so his income tax will be calculated on te second job as 20% OR would the HMRC make the calculation on the total annual income !!!

In other words, does the tax counts on how many jobs you have or on how much of money you get every year to be categorized on specific tax code

Waiting your response plz !!!

It's much simpler than that.
They designate one job (usually the one you work most or earn the highest) as your main job and give the whole of your personal allowance against it, with a tax code of 1060L. For any other job you are taxed at basic rate, with a code such as BR. At the end of the tax year, they work out how much you have earned in each job and how much tax you have paid, and adjust the amount up or down. If you have overpaid tax, it will be refunded as a credit or by adjusting your tax code. You can ask your tax office to divide your personal allowance between your jobs, if you think this will allow you to pay the right amount of tax without much end-of-year adjustment.
