Re: Have to pay tax "at source" again, as it was lost

If they paid you as though you were already off tax at source, then it's on you. You probably can arrange to pay in installments, but you'll have to pay interest.

That's the easy bit. Now for the hard bit:

If your employer paid you as though they had deducted the tax, but didn't pass it on, then it's fairly clear they've done something wrong.Either they must give the money to you so that you can pass it to the tax office, or they must pay it.

If that's the case, then you need some advice from an independent accountant or even a lawyer. The question is whether your employer is deliberately trying to defraud (you or the tax office), or if they're just incompetent. Probably a good time to start looking for a new employer either way.
